Abstract

Emphysematous pyelonephritis is a rare necrotizing renal parenchymal infection characterized by gas accumulation in kidneys with or without involving surrounding structures. Patients with diabetes mellitus are the usual sufferers. Here we depict a case of a young Bangladeshi diabetic lady who presented with abdominal pain and dysuria. Investigations confirmed left sided emphysematous pyelonephritis. She responded well to open drainage along with antibiotic coverage.
