The prevalence of urinary tract infection is high in patients with diabetes mellitus. The presence of gas in the bladder lumen or wall constitute emphysematous cystitis. This disease is usually observed in diabetic patients. Early diagnosis and treatment are important factors for the outcome and absence of after-effects. We report the case of a 85 Year old women who was admitted to the hospital because of a gastrointestinal bleeding and subsequently developed an emphysematous cystitis. We present a comprehensive review of the literature and discuss pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of this condition.
