 Emphysematous cystitis is defined by the presence of gas in the urinary bladder wall. It complicates urinary tract infections especially in adults and diabetic women. It is also associated with neuropathicbladders, bladder outlet obstruction, in-dwelling urinary catheters,chronic urinary tract infections and immunosuppression.

 This report is a 71 year-old man that was presented with frequency, dysuria, fever and abdominal pain. We diagnosed emphysematous cystitis, during the work up. E-coli was isolated. He was empirically treated with ceftriaxon and based on the sensitivities of culture he was treated at home using ciprofloxacin.
