Abstract

Globally near one billion Muslims fast during this month. So it is an opportunity to evaluate the relationship between Ramadan fasting and peptic ulcer perforation. Present study was designed to evaluate the effect of fasting, socioeconomic condition, smoking and inadequate treatment of PUD on peptic ulcer perforation.
