Emphysematous hepatitis (EH) is a very rare, rapidly progressive fulminant gas-forming infection of the liver parenchyma. There is a paucity of literature with regard to pathogenesis, involved organisms, imaging appearance, and management of this condition. We report the successful treatment of a patient diagnosed with EH by adopting a multimodal step-up approach including rigorous fluid resuscitation, early hemodynamic support, broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy, and percutaneous radiologically guided drainage followed by minimal invasive surgical treatment.
