Background: Time trends in the epidemiology of perforated peptic ulcer disease reflect complex, multifactorial etiologies.

Results: Highest incidence was found in 40 – 49 years of age (25%) followed by 20 – 29 years (21.67%), 30 – 39 years (20%), and 50 – 59 years (15%).
Conclusions: Duodenal ulcer perforation was more common in the age group of 40-49 years.
