Abstract

This case report describes retroperitoneal and subserosal emphysema as the primary indication of a caecal perforation associated with an episode of colic. Feed contamination was not noted on repeated peritoneal fluid samples or within the peritoneal cavity at the time of surgery; however, subserosal and retroperitoneal emphysema at the base of the caecum was identified during surgical exploration, which later corresponded to retroperitoneal caecal perforation at necropsy examination.
