This patient underwent emergent exploratory laparotomy with a preoperative diagnosis of peptic ulcer perforation based on his history. Two coins were removed from perforated ileum. The patient was discharged on 5th POD with an ileostomy following an uneventful hospital stay. Interesting facts reported with this case was absence of any specific history of coins ingestion and no detection of these coins in preoperative abdominal skiagram which was further vitiated by presence of fever and medical history.
