Fournier's gangrene. Report of three cases and review of the literature.
Acta Urol Belg. 1990; 58(2):161-70.AU

Abstract

Fournier's gangrene, or synergistic gangrene of the male external genitalia is a rapidly spreading necrotising infection of the penis and scrotum. Although not so frequent in our civilized world it is by no means rare. In early days it was characterised by a high mortality. Aggressive surgical debridement, broad spectrum antibiotics and plastic reconstructive technics have all contributed to a better survival of the patients.
