Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is a rare, life threatening, upper urinary tract infection with high mortality rate.

CASE REPORT:

We report a type-2 diabetes mellitus patient presenting with persistent fever, vomiting and pyuria despite appropriate treatment, diagnosed as a case of EPN, recovered without any surgical intervention.

CONCLUSION:

Suspicion of EPN should be entertained in diabetes mellitus patient with persistent pyuria and deteriorating condition despite adequate treatment with antibiotics.
