We report a case of synchronous gastric rupture caused by blunt trauma to chest in an 8-year-old child that was successfully repaired by primary closure. In this paper, we emphasize the need for early diagnosis and the aggressive surgical treatment as a key to decreasing the mortality and morbidity from this relatively rare injury, especially in children of this age group.
