The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical and therapeutic aspects of peritonitis by perforation of gastric and duodenal ulcer. This was a retrospective and descriptive study over 8 years (2010-2018) which allowed to collect 54 cases of peptic ulcer. Included in the study were all patients with confirmed gastroduodenal perforation on histology or laparotomy. We collected 54 cases of peptic ulcer perforated s. The age group of 30 - 49 years was the majority. The male sex was dominant with 90.7% of cases; the clinical picture was dominated by abdominal contracture associated with pain in 74.07% of cases. X-ray of the abdomen without preparation (AWP) revealed in 87.03% of cases of pneumoperitoneum. The perforation was in 68.52% of cases on the gastric antrum and in 31.48% on the duodenum. The surgical procedure used was the bank of excision, and a suture reinforcement epiploic in 68.52% of cases, a simple suture made in 31.48% of cases, the disease was marked by a fistula (1.90%) and mortality was 5.55% of cases. The gastroduodenal ulcer perforation is potentially serious and responsible peritonitis whose surgical treatment involves the peritoneal toilet and sutures the puncture.
