Abstract

Meconium peritonitis results from intrauterine gastrointestinal perforation, and can occur as early as the second trimester. Meconium extrudes into the peritoneal cavity, inciting an intense fibroplastic reaction that results in intra-abdominal calcifications. It is a rare condition occurring in 1 in 35 000 pregnant women.
