[Fournier's gangrene: report of 6 cases].
Mikrobiyol Bul. 1988 Jan; 22(1):72-5.MB

Abstract

6 patients with Fournier's gangrene a rare but life threatening disease, who were successfully managed are presented. Mortality rates between 17-45 percent have been reported for this disease, but through the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, aggressive surgical debridement and when possible with multiple drainage incisions to avoid skin defects, the mortality rate has been reduced to 0 percent. We have found an association with diabetes mellitus in 2 cases, which is one of the serious predisposition factors and should not be forgotten.
