Small bowel perforation in case of carcinoma breast occurring after chemotherapy is a rare occurrence. A case of a patient with spontaneous small bowel perforation following chemotherapy for infiltrating ductal carcinoma breast is described. The patient presented with perforation peritonitis two weeks after receiving first cycle of adjuvant chemotherapy. Awareness of the possibility of gut perforation in such cases is warranted so as to prevent delay in diagnosis and management.
