[Fournier's gangrene. Report of 6 cases].
Arch Esp Urol. 1992 Jul-Aug; 45(6):515-8.AE

Abstract

Fournier's gangrene is an uncommon pathological condition that affects the perineoscrotal region. Its course is fulminant and it carries a high mortality. We present 6 cases that had been treated over a period of 24 months. The mortality rate was 33.3%. The mean patient age was 53 years. The clinical and therapeutic aspects are discussed. The need to perform wide repeated debridement and the usefulness of the epidural catheter are underscored.
