Abstract

Emphysematous cystitis is a relatively rare clinical entity caused by gas-fermenting bacterial and fungal organisms. Presentation is often nonspecific, and imaging techniques provide the best diagnostic clues. The case of a 46-year-old man who presented with hematuria, pneumaturia, fever, and chills who was found to have emphysematous cystitis is reported.
