Abstract

Spontaneous or idiopathic bladder rupture is sometimes life threatening. A diagnosis is often difficult and delayed due to atypical presentations. We report on three cases of spontaneous intraperitoneal bladder rupture, two of which presented as acute abdomen, and the other as diabetic ketoacidosis superimposed on sepsis. Mild azotemia and ascites were present in all cases. All diagnoses were confirmed by surgery.
