Blunt traumatic evisceration is extremely rare. We describe a 20-month-old boy with stomach, small and large intestine evisceration after blunt trauma. Immediate laparotomy and surgical repair were performed. There was no injury other than a small hole in the mesentery. The bowels were drained into the abdominal cavity and the skin was closed. The patient recovered well.
