The authors describe their own observation of a complicated course of emphysematous cholecystitis caused by anaerobic microorganisms. An extensive subhepatic abscess was involved which developed as a results of emphysematous cholecystitis diagnosed by sonographic and CT examination. After two operations on account of the abscess and a phlegmon of the abdominal wall the patient recovered. The authors emphasize that early diagnosis and adequate treatment calls for collaboration of clinicians, microbiologists and roentgenologists.
