High-spin states in 112Pd were studied using prompt $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy with Gammasphere following heavy-ion-induced fission in the reaction 18O + 208Pb at 91 MeV. A new 8+ level at 2638 keV was discovered with transitions connecting it to the yrast band and the quasi-gamma band. The three, now established, closely spaced 8+ states indicate a mixing between the ground-state band, s-band, and quasi-gamma band. Several high-spin structures with likely negative parity have been extended to higher spin and it is proposed that they are based on the $\nu h_{11/2}
(g_{7/2}d_{5/2})$ and $\nu h_{11/2}(s_{1/2}d_{3/2})$ configurations.
