Abstract
Peritonitis due to peptic ulcer perforation is a frequently encountered surgical emergency. Intake of non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Helicobacter pylori infection and neoplastic etiology are the common causes documented. Uncommonly peptic perforation can be due to fungal infection. If it occurs; it is associated with significantly increased morbidity and mortality. This case report emphasize on considering fungal infection as etiology of gastric perforation, even when other common causes like NSAIDs intake are present. An early diagnosis can prevent fatal complications like shock, fever, wound complications and multiorgan failure. Knowledge of such case reports can help a surgeon in dealing with common pathology but rare etiology.

Key words: Candida infection, Fluconazole, Gastric perforation
