A rare case of traumatic perforation of the ileum in a neonate due to mauling by wild monkey from a hilly area is reported. The patient presented with features of septicemia, bilious vomiting, abdominal distention and signs of peritonitis. Exploratory laparotomy with closure of the perforation was performed and the baby survived. After thorough and careful review of available English literature, we found no similar case and this forms the basis of present publication.
