CT as a Diagnostic Tool for Emphysematous Pyelitis: A Case Report.

Cureus 2021 Feb 23;13(2):e13513. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Radiology, Dr. Ajmera Diagnostic, New Delhi, IND.

Gas forming infections of the renal collecting system occurs because of organisms like Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, and Proteus. If the gas is restricted to the collecting system, without causing involvement of the cortex, it is called emphysematous pyelitis; whereas, invasion and penetration of the cortex imply a more gruesome diagnosis of emphysematous pyelonephritis. A 59-year-old male patient, previously diagnosed with a large right renal calculus and having multiple co-morbidities presented to the surgery department with right flank pain; Double J (DJ) stenting was done to relieve the pain from colic due to obstructive renal calculi; the patient subsequently discharged without any post-procedural complications.
