The etiology, clinical features and treatment of thirty-eight cases of fatal perforative peritonitis were studied. The commonest cause of fatal peritonitis in this series was found to be ileal perfo­ration. Early diagnosis, intensive post-operative management includ­ing fluid and electrolyte balance, and employment of potent anti­biotics like gentamycin and kanamycin would definitely help in reducing mortality of peritonitis.
