Abstract

Here we describe the case of a 62-year-old female who presented with emphysematous gastritis with portal venous gas and Pneumobilia on subsequent imaging. The patient reported two weeks of vague abdominal pain and vomiting. On presentation to our institution’s emergency department, she was hemodynamically stable with a rather benign abdominal exam. Thus, we elected for conservative management with high clinical concern for decompensation and low threshold for operative intervention.
