Abstract

Boerhaave's syndrome is a potential lethal condition which presents not only a diagnostic but also a therapeutic challenge. Errors in diagnosis are usually caused by unawareness of its varied and atypical presentations. All clinicians need to be aware of this lethal disease, its frequent unusual presentations and the importance of early diagnosis.
