  • CONCLUSIONS: Air from pneumatic tools produces column of air at pressure of 3.5-8.8kg/cm(2) and pressure greater than the resting anal pressure of 0.109kg/cm(2) force air to enter the colon when the perineum is sprayed. Different degree of colon injury results when airflow is greater than 1.46L/m, and/or intraluminal pressure greater than 0.109kg/cm(2). In most children, initial anxiety to tell the truth result in difficulty to obtain good history.Spraying of the perianal with excessive pneumatic force of greater than the resting anal pressure and high air flow rate causes multiple site colon injury and tension pneumoperitoneum due to colon perforation. Parent should be caution in children playing with high pressure pneumatic tool, and the importance of history is emphases for early correct diagnosis.
