884-886

Emphysematous esophagitis is an extremely rare disease and there are very few previous reports in the literature. We report a case of emphysematous esophagitis and gastritis with complete affectation of the gastric and esophageal wall at diagnosis. Two surgical interventions were performed due to gastric perforation that was treated in both cases with primary closure. The post-operative recovery was satisfactory. Despite the large emphysematous esophago-gastritis affectation at diagnosis and the presence of gastric perforation, it is safe to perform the same management principles as with emphysematous gastritis. This should be as conservative as possible in case a surgical procedure is required.
