Abstract

A case of small bowel injury caused a blunt abdominal trauma and associated with a seat belt injury is reported. Review of the literature shows that, in general, blunt abdominal trauma will cause perforation of the small bowel; but we could not find reference to selective nonsurgical treatment of patients with intestinal injury that do not present with perforation. Similar to cases of duodenal hematomas, we consider that nonsurgical treatment, in the absence of other indications for an operation, should be the treatment of choice for these children.
