The emphysematous pyelonephritis is an uncommon, but life-threatening, severe renal infection characterized by the presence of gas in the renal parenchyma or perinephric space. The prompt diagnosis and early treatment is important in the prognosis of the disease. The disease is encountered mainly in patients with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and/or obstructive uropathy, etc. The mortality rate of patients treated conservatively approaches approximately 80% in some series. These patients often present with signs of sepsis or septic shock. We experienced a case of diabetic patient with asymptomatic bacteriuria who was diagnosed as emphysematous pyelonephritis by abdominal ultrasonogram and CT scanning. It was caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae and treated by medical treatment alone. We herein report the case with literature.
Key Words: Emphysematous pyelonephritis , Asymptomatic bacteriuria , Diabetes mellitus , Klebsiella pneumoniae
