Emphysematous gastritis is a rare form of gastritis characterized by gaseous dissection of the stomach wall usually secondary to invasion by gas forming organisms, corrosive ingestion, trauma, or gastric infarction. We report a unique case of emphysematous gastritis secondary to ulcerative esophagitis without an underlying history of trauma, ischemia, or ingestion of corrosive agents. The patient responded well to conservative management. Emphysematous gastritis is a deadly infectious disease. Early recognition and management are crucial as there is no specific approach to treatment despite advances in medical science.
