Abdominal necrotizing fasciitis associated with severe clinical table
Mustafa Sit, Tarik Ocak, Arif Duran, Furkan E Karabekmez, Ayse Cetin.
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.
