Description

Necrotizing Fasciitis: Severe infection which travels in the suprafacial plane. In this instance, the infection

started in the perirectal region and spread anterially through the parineum and up over the right inguinal

area. The picture on the left demonstrates marked inflammation. The picture on the right was taken several

days later and several fistulae are now apparent in the skin. This infection is normally treated with aggresive

surgical debridment. However, in this case, advanced cancer precluded the use of any operative approach.
