Spontaneous urinary bladder rupture in children is a very rare clinical occurrence that can be life threatening if left untreated. Patients usually present with symptoms of peritonitis and the correct diagnosis is usually made at surgery. Here, we present a case of spontaneous bladder perforation that was operated with a diagnosis of acute abdomen. No etiological factor for bladder perforation was found, and after the operation, the patient experienced no further problems.
