Abstract: Post-caesarean pyoperitonitis is a rare but severe infectious complication causing maternal morbidity and mortality. We present two cases of post-caesarean pyoperitonitis that were successfully managed by prompt surgical exploration. The first case presented with late post-caesarean intra-abdominal sepsis in a young lady with subsequent bowel involvement, while second case presented with early post-caesarean intra-abdominal sepsis in elderly lady secondary to uterine scar dehiscence with absence of bowel involvement.
