An 87-year-old female patient who developed epigastric pain was diagnosed with perforated duodenal diverticulum. Her hemodynamic status was stable, and no signs of peritoneal irritation were observed. Inflammation was localized. Therefore, she received conservative treatment. The patient uneventfully improved and started oral intake at 16 days post admission and was discharged after 28 days.
