Abstract

A patient sustained deep dermal burns from contact with gastric contents following disconnection of his percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube. We discuss the complications of gastrostomies and add this as a rare complication, which may be prevented by a modification to the outlet control of a PEG tube.
