We present the case of an 83-year-old woman that visited the emergency room of our hospital for correcting the transanal small bowel evisceration after a defecatory effort, without any history of rectal trauma. Emergency laparotomy was indicated, with the intraoperative finding of perforation in the anterior superior rectum, with a defect of approximately 3 cm. Due to the absence of fecaloid peritonitis, it was decided to perform a primary closure with double sutures. The patient evolved favorably.
