Abstract
Necrotizing fasciitis is characterized by progressive tissue necrosis and a life-threatening severe soft-tissue infection of skin, subcutaneous tissue and fascia. The etiology includes trauma, surgery and injection. In this report, we aimed to present a morbid obese female patient diagnosed with incarcerated umbilical hernia and subsequent severe necrotizing fasciitis during follow-up and discuss with the literature.

Key words: Necrotizing Fasciitis; Tissue Necrosis; Life-Threatening
