Primary Peritonitis in Immunocompetent Children

Mohamed Zouari, Hamdi Louati , Mahdi Ben Dhaou, Imen Abid and Riadh Mhiri

Primary peritonitis is defined as peritoneal infection without an evident intra peritoneal septic focus.

Here we report two cases of primary peritonitis in immunocompetent children. Although rarely encountered, primary peritonitis should be included in the differential diagnosis of acute abdominal pain in children.
