Amebiasis is still a major healthcare concern, especially in developing countries like Ecuador. The lack of sanitary control and hygiene measures make parasites infections still a burden for patients and physicians. Despite infections due to this parasites are usually mild, severe infections and fatal outcomes although rare still occur. Bowel perforation is a rare complication of amebiasis, and unfortunately, it continues to be almost fatal. We present a case of an Ecuadorian patient who presented to the emergency room with an acute abdomen, despite adequate surgery and critical care, the patient regrettably died. Bowel perforation due to Entamoeba histolytica was the final diagnosis.
