INTRODUCTION: Stapled anopexy is considered the gold standard in treating haemorroidal disease associated to mucosal prolapse, but severe complications have been described. Among these, a minimal anastomotic leakage may lead to gas spreading into surrounding soft tissues. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 61 year old male who developed pneumoretroperitoneum and pneumomediastinun two days after a Stapled Anopexy. CT scans showed a minimal leakage with no abscess. The patient was successfully treated by bowel rest, antibiotics and total parenteral nutrition, avoiding surgical approach. CONCLUSION: A minimal anastomotic leakage following Stapled Anopexy, when leading to air diffusion into soft tissues and not associated to abscess or peritonitis may be treated conservatively avoiding ileostomy or colostomy.
