Emphysematous prostatitis is a rare condition that is characterized by gas and pus accumulation in the prostate. We report a 70 year old man with emphysematous prostatitis caused by Escherichia coli (E.coli). He had a history of long standing diabetes mellitus. He was admitted with fever and dysuria. Computed tomography (CT) scans corroborated the existence of air collection in the prostate. Under the impression of emphysematous prostatitis, the patient was successfully treated with antibiotics without the need for any major surgical intervention.
