This is a case of a 76 year old female with multiple medical comorbidities, abuse of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs due to chronic knee pain and remote history of laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair who presented with peritonitic signs and pneumoperitoneum. Exploratory laparoscopy revealed recurrence of the paraesophageal hernia and upon further exploration a perforated gastric ulcer near the diaphragmatic hiatus was identified. It was repaired with omental patch and intraoperative esophagogastroduodenoscopy was negative for leak. Patient tolerated the procedure well and was discharged home on postoperative day 5 after having a normal upper gastrointestinal series study and tolerating diet.
