Objective: Idiopathic spontaneous bladder rupture is a low incidence clinical entity. We perform a literature review and report a recurrent case, with special attention to its physiopathology mainly if associated with alcohol abuse.
Methods: We report the case of a patient with recurrent spontaneous bladder rupture associated with alcohol abuse. The presentation of this case is uncommon.
Results: 53 year old male with history of chronic alcohol abuse who presented with abdominal pain and renal failure.
Conclusions: Spontaneous bladder rupture is the cause of acute abdomen and acute renal failure. Idiopathic rupture associated with substance abuse has proper clinical characteristics that make it to be considered a different entity than other causes of spontaneous bladder rupture.
