Abstract

Fournier’s Gangrene is a life threatening urosurgical emergency and a synergistic gangrene of scrotum. It is a rapidly progressive & devastating form of necrotising fasciitis of perinal, perineum and genital area associated with high mortality and morbidity. Radical surgical debridement, broad spectrum antibiotics, negative pressure wound dressings and hyperbaric oxygen therapy are considered to be the cornerstone of treatment and contribute to improved outcomes. We present a case of Fournier Gangrene in a 57 Year old male patient complicated by presence of rare multiple microbial which was successfully managed with early diagnosis, prompt measures and use of hyperbaric oxygen.
