Emphysematous cystitis is a rare complication that is often associated with different risk factors mainly diabetes mellitus. Presents nonspecific clinical bladder irritation and abdominal pain usually revealed as a radiological finding. Abdominal computed tomography is the method of choice for diagnosis. Treatment requires strict glycemic control, early and intensive antibiotic therapy and urinary drainage that solve most cases. It can be complicated to affect any part of the urinary system which worsens the prognosis.

Keywords : Emphysematous cystitis; Diabetes mellitus.
