We present the case of anelderly patient, who had orthopaedic surgery and suffered in the early post-operativeperiod an idiopathic gastric partial necrosis. We reviewed the literature andit is an extraordinarily infrequent entity. Partial resections have alreadybeen described in case of limited necrosis, as reported in our case. Promptdiagnosis of idiopathic gastric necrosis and aggressive treatment aremandatory. Further awareness of this strange entity and its risk factors canlead to a quicker diagnosis and higher possibilities of survival for thepatient.
