Abstract

Emphysematous pyelonephritis is a rare life-threatening suppurative necrotising infection of the renal parenchyma and perirenal tissue producing abscess formation and intrarenal gas. It is almost always seen in diabetics, making it a concern of the physician. A high index of suspicion is required for diagnosis and a combined approach has significantly reduced the mortality.
