Abstract:
Emphysematous gastritis is a rare and often fatal disorder occurring when there is diffuse infiltration of the stomach wall by pathogenic gas-forming bacteria. It is associated with mortality rates over 50%. We present a case of emphysematous gastritis with radiological findings enabling us to distinguish from similar benign conditions such as gastric pneumatosis and interstitial gastritis, which was managed conservatively with a successful outcome.
