Stercoral perforation of the rectum is an uncommon complication of chronic constipation and is therefore often not considered as a differential in patients presenting to primary health-care facilities. Unfortunately, until awareness of this rare but potentially life-threatening disorder is raised patients will continue to be misdiagnosed and potentially suffer from poorer outcomes. We review the literature and discuss a case of rectal perforation and its management.
