The patient is a 50-year-old male with mental retardation, who reported vomiting after having undergone surgery for a left perianal abscess 10 days earlier. He presented abdominal distension, diffuse peritonism and right ischiorectal erythema. Abdominal computed tomography revealed pneumoperitoneum, intra-abdominal fluid and a fluid collection with gas in the presacral space, right Retzius and Bogros, with inflammatory alterations in the homolateral ischiorectal and ischioanal fossae (Fig. 1).

Midline laparotomy demonstrated pus coming out of the retropubic space, communicating with the right pararectal space, with extraperitoneal and perianal drainage, as well as diffuse purulent peritonitis, but no intraabdominal origin. A colostomy was created in the left iliac fossa.

The patient required prolonged hospitalization in the intensive care unit, with favorable evolution of the infection and wound.

The patient did not require further surgery and was discharged on the 37th day post-op.

Diagnosis: perianal abscess with extension to the preperitoneal space and abdominal cavity.
