Chilaiditi sign is a radiological finding which describes the interposition of a part of the bowel between the diaphragm and the liver, a finding that can be misinterpreted as pneumoperitonium. Chilaiditi syndrome refers to a clinically symptomatic patient in the presence of the classical radiographic findings. It is a very rare syndrome which usually follows a benign course. Here we report the first documented case of Chiliaditi syndrome complicated by cecal perforation.
