Boerhaave’s syndrome is a rare life threatening condition that is often misdiagnosed and fatal if not treated promptly. While the gold standard is early surgical intervention, recent studies have showed success with conservative management. We report a case of Boerhaave’s syndrome that was managed conservatively by decompressive gastrostomy, feeding jejunostomy, bilateral intercostal drainage tubes with added proximal diverting cervical esophagostomy. The patient recovered completely and stoma closure was done two months later. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All rights reserved. Source
