|Abstract:||Emphysematous cystitis is a rare lower urinary tract infection. A case of emphysematous cystitis with diabetes mellitus and transverse colon cancer is reported. The patient was an 81-year-old woman complaining of nausea and vomiting. Urinalysis showed hematopyuria. Plain abdominal film and CT scan showed gaseous shadow in the bladder wall. Urine culture contained Escherichia coli. A urethral catheterization and administration of antibiotics resulted in the marked improvement in the clinical course. To our knowledge, 53 cases of emphysematous cystitis have been reported in the Japanese literature including this case and the clinical features are reviewed.|
