Gallbladder rupture following blunt abdominal trauma is a rare event recognized on evaluation and treatment of other visceral injuries during laparotomy. Isolated gallbladder rupture secondary to blunt abdominal trauma is even more uncommon. The clinical presentation of gallbladder injury is variable, resulting in a delay in diagnosis and treatment. We report the case of a patient who suffered an isolated gallbladder rupture due to blunt abdominal trauma.

Although relatively rare, the gastrointestinal stromal tumors comprise most mesenchymal tumors of the digestive tract and account for 5% of all sarcomas. The most common symptoms are pain, gastrointestinal bleeding and palpable mass. This study reported the case of a young patient who developed hemoperitoneum due to gastric neoplasm rupture and required urgent surgical treatment. Pathology and immunohistochemistry analysis showed an epidemiologically rare case: epithelioid and c-KIT negative tumor.
