We present three cases of young male patients with perforated duodenal ulcer that were diagnosed and treated as appendicitis with appendectomy. They presented with peritonitis and were treated accordingly. Because of the misdiagnosis, their hospital course was significantly prolonged. This morbidity could have been avoided by careful history-taking, examination and peroperative findings.
