PEREZ VILLAVERDE, Noemí et al. Boerhaave's Syndrome. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.2, pp.158-161. ISSN 2386-8201.

We present the case of a 37-year-old man who goes to Primary Care Consultation afflicted with abdominal pain together with blood in vomit. After several evaluations and a second visit to Emergency Service, he is hospitalized, where he is finally diagnosed with Boerhaave Syndrome (spontaneous esophageal perforation), requiring urgent surgery.

Keywords : Spontaneous esophageal perforation; Boerhaave syndrome; Abdominal pain.
