Abstract

Emphysematous gastritis secondary to vaso-occlusive disease is a surgical emergency. It is a rare but severe form of widespread phlegmonous gastritis commonly encountered in corrosive ingestion, alcohol abuse and rarely with infections. The clinical presentation is diagnostic with supportive information from contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of the abdomen and gastroduodenoscopy. Here we describe a case of emphysematous gastritis with spontaneous vaso-occlusive disease that was successfully managed without surgery.
