Fournier's gangrene presenting as gas-forming subcutaneous infection of the scrotum.
Scand J Urol Nephrol 1983; 17(2):245-7SJ

Abstract

Two cases of gas-forming Fournier's gangrene were recently treated in a urology department. The etiology, pathology, bacteriology and treatment of Fournier's gangrene are discussed. An aggressive attitude with respect to both surgery and antibiotic therapy is recommended as possible means of reducing the high mortality associated with the condition.
