Abstract

Infection is a serious problem encountered in urology, especially when emergency or severe conditions fail to respond to medications or conservative treatment. Emphysematous cystitis is a rare condition, and thus rapid, correct management is important. In this report, we review our experience and the steps of treatment for this rare condition.
