Fournierís Gangrene with Extension into Deep Tissues

Muhammad Fahad ul Hassan, Nausheen Siddiqui.

Abstract
Fournierís gangrene is a rather rare disease resulting in the catastrophic spread of the infection usually through the superficial
fascias. It is also known as polymicrobial necrotizing fasciitis of the urogenital and perineal areas. In rare instances, the infection
may spread through the deeper structures resulting in worsened outcomes and poor prognosis of the condition. The extent
of the disease can be evaluated through multiple modalities with CT scan being the choice of investigation due to its convenience
and ability to reveal the cause of infection (e.g. perirectal abscess) and assistance in surgical planning.

Key words: Fournierís Gangrene, Abscess
