A REVIEW ON FOURNIER'S GANGRENE
Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a rare but life threatening disease. FG has been shown to have a predilection for patients with diabetes as well as long term alcohol misuse; however, it can also affect patients with non‐obvious immune compromise. The disease is usually located in the genitourinary tract, lower gastrointestinal tract, or skin. Fournier's gangrene is a mixed infection caused by both aerobic and anaerobic bacterial flora. The development and progression of the gangrene is often fulminating and can rapidly cause multiple organ failure and death.
Keywords: Fournier's gangrene, genitourinary tract.
