Abstract

Necrotizing fasciitis is a potentially fatal condition that can affect any part of the body. It can occur after trauma, around foreign bodies in surgical wounds, or can be idiopathic. We describe a case of necrotizing fasciitis involving the breast following an initial debridement of an inflammatory lesion.
