Management of Necrotizing Fasciitis and Related Infection
Nectrotizing fasciitis is a relentlessly destructive bacterial infection characterized by extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous tissues of the abdominal wall and, less frequently, the extremities. The condition is fortunately uncommon but is potentially fatal and demands early recognition in order that treatment may be effective. Wilson  was the first to use the descriptive term “necrotizing fasciitis” because of the characteristic necrotic fascia and subsequently observed non-specificity of the pathogenic organism involved. Others in later reports  confirmed the validity of this observation.
