A 50-year-old male with past medical history of diabetes mellitus presented with extensive Fournier's Gangrene. He had a wide-spread area of involvement and the wound vacuum placement involved the entirety of the phallus. We describe a surgical technique where the penis can be diverted from the site of the wound to allow for more secure wound vacuum placement and future reconstructive options.

BACKGROUND: Although air has traditionally been considered a barrier to sonographic imaging, when encountered in unusual settings it can serve as an important indicator of various pathologic states as well. Clinician recognition and thorough understanding of the characteristic pattern of artifacts generated by air are critical for making a number of important diagnoses. CASE SERIES: We present five emergency department cases in which air was visualized in a pathologic location...

Fournier's gangrene in female patients has low incidence rate but high mortality rate compared with that in males, with many cases resulting in death at acute phase. This is due to the differences in male and female genital anatomy, which should be fully understood by physicians to increase the patient's survival rate. After crossing the acute phase of the disease by an appropriate treatment, it is important to reconstruct vaginal or vulvar defects according to the patient's three-dimensional anatomical structures...

Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a fulminant infective necrotizing fasciitis, which includes the genital, perineal, and perianal regions. A 77-year-old man had previously been diagnosed as having diabetes mellitus (DM) and was treated with pioglitazone (15 mg) and miglitol (150 mg). He developed sudden perineal discomfort, fever with painful penile, and scrotal edema, subsequently leading to urinary retention. According to physical examination and CT scan results for the swollen penis and scrotum, he was diagnosed with FG...

BACKGROUND: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a devastating disease that is characterized by necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital, or perianal region. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are the key component of its treatment. However, there is paucity of data regarding the optimal empirical antibiotherapy for FG. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from patients who underwent surgery for FG between January 2007 and December 2012 were retrieved from a prospectively collected departmental FG database...

Background. Anal stenosis is a rare but serious complication of anorectal surgery. Severe anal stenosis is a challenging condition. Case Presentation. A 70-year-old Japanese man presented with a ten-hour history of continuous anal pain due to incarcerated hemorrhoids. He had a history of reducible internal hemorrhoids and was followed for 10 years. He had a fever and nonreducible internal hemorrhoids surrounding necrotic soft tissues. He was diagnosed as Fournier's gangrene and treated with debridement and diverting colostomy...

BACKGROUND: Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a group of relatively rare infections, usually caused by two or more pathogens. It affects the skin and subcutaneous tissues of lower and upper limbs, perineal area (Fournier's gangrene), and the abdominal wall. Early diagnosis and aggressive surgical management are of high significance for the management of this potentially lethal disease. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study in patients who presented, during the last decade, at four University Surgical Departments in the area of Athens, Greece, with an admission diagnosis of NF...

Two cases of Fournier's gangrene occurred during chemotherapy for advanced rectal cancer. Patients were treated using surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy. Case 1: A 66-year-old man had advanced rectal cancer with para-aortic and inguinal lymph node metastases. He received a sigmoid colostomy and chemotherapy(capecitabine, oxaliplatin, bevacizumab). Due to progression of the rectal mass, we performed radiotherapy(30 Gy)and chemotherapy(irinotecan, S-1, bevacizumab). After 14 days, he was hospitalized with a diagnosis of Fournier's gangrene with anal pain and fever...

We describe a case of a man aged 57 years admitted to our tertiary centre via his general practitioner, presenting with a 1-week history of scrotal pain, testicular swelling and fluctuance. He was initially managed in the community with flucoclaxacillin for 1 week, but failed to respond to treatment. Clinical history was suggestive of Fournier's gangrene, but initial examination was not conclusive. Repeated examination over the next hour aided diagnosis and helped to track the progression of the condition...

We present a case of Fournier's gangrene secondary to rectal cancer that was managed with perineal reconstruction using a posterior thigh flap after debridement and tumor resection. A 67-year-old man was admitted with disturbed consciousness as well as hip and right thigh pain. His perineal and gluteal skin was necrotic. CT revealed subcutaneous emphysema that had spread from the rectum to the gluteal region and right thigh. We diagnosed him with Fournier's gangrene, and then removed the necrotic tissue and constructed a sigmoidostomy...

BACKGROUND: Female gender is accepted as a poor prognostic factor for Fournier's gangrene (FG). However, there is a paucity of data in the literature regarding this matter. This case-matched study was designed to investigate the impact of gender on outcomes of FG. METHODS: Study patient data were retrieved from 120-patient, prospectively maintained database. Thirty-two female patients with FG were case-matched to 32 male patients based on symptom duration (days), FG severity index score, patient age, etiology, and presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) terms...

PURPOSE: Reconstruction of perineal defects remains a challenge because such defects can be extensive, complex, and three-dimensional. This report presents a retrospective review of our past 5 years of experience in perineal reconstruction, and suggests a simple algorithmic approach according to anatomical divisions with multiple pedicled perforator flaps for extensive perineal defects. METHODS: From January 2011 to December 2015, 16 patients, including 5 men and 11 women, underwent reconstruction of extensive perineal defects...

Fournier's gangrene is an infectious necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital, or perianal regions and is uncommon in children. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is effective for the treatment of infantile spasms; however, suppression of immune function is one of the major adverse effects of this approach. We encountered a 2-month-old boy with infantile spasms that had been treated with ACTH and had developed complicating Fournier's gangrene. Strangulation of a right inguinal hernia was observed after ACTH treatment...

BACKGROUND: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a life-threatening infection affecting the perineum and genitals. Complex patient management often necessitates transfer to tertiary centers. We aimed to characterize hospital transfer patterns and assess morbidity among patients with FG in Washington State. STUDY DESIGN: The Washington State Comprehensive Hospital Abstract Reporting System includes claims from all hospital discharges in Washington. We identified patients with FG between 2007 and 2013, based on diagnosis and treatment codes...

REVIEW
Judith C Hagedorn, Hunter Wessells
Despite advances in the evaluation, treatment, and pathophysiological understanding of necrotizing soft-tissue infections, Fournier's gangrene remains a life-threatening urological emergency. Although the condition can affect patients of any age and gender, it might be more prevalent in some high-risk groups with certain comorbidities. Several prognostic and diagnostic tools have been developed to assist with clinical decision-making once the diagnosis is made - primarily based on the physician's physical exam and potentially supported by laboratory and imaging findings...
