Emphysematous pyelonephritis is a life-threatening condition characterized by necrotising gas forming infection of the renal parenchyma. We describe eight patients seen over a period of 2 years, 62.5% males and 37.5% females with age range between 21 and 65 years. About 75% patients had diabetes mellitus. Six patients were managed conservatively. One patient required nephrectomy with percutaneous drainage and one patient died without surgical intervention.
