Abstract

Primary peritonitis in a child without underlying medical conditions is rare outside the neonatal period. A girl with no past medical history presented with acute abdominal pain. Laparotomy revealed primary peritonitis due to group A Streptococcus (serotype emm89). She was treated with antibiotics and immune globulin, and recovered fully.
