Title : Necrotizing Fasciitis- a lethal soft tissue infection: review article


Background: Necrotizing Fasciitis is a rapidly progressive soft tissue infection that is almost fatal without prompt treatment. This review highlights about the basic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of NF.

Description: Various nomenclatures have been used to describe necrotizing soft tissue infections. These infections are classified on the basis of the microbes involved, depth of invasion and anatomical sites involved. Diabetes is the most common risk factor for NF. The masquerading cutaneous manifestations make the diagnosis of NF a challenge. Laboratory parameters, imaging techniques and scoring systems have been designed to aid in early diagnosis.

Conclusion: High index of clinical suspicion is needed to make prompt diagnosis of NF. Urgent aggressive surgical debridement with antimicrobial therapy limits the morbidity and mortality associated with NF.
