Fournier's gangrene is a gas-forming, necrotising soft tissue infection affecting the perineum. It spreads rapidly along the deep fascial planes and is associated with a high mortality rate. With a growing elderly population with comorbidities, the frequency of severe cases of Fournier's gangrene is expected to increase. We retrospectively reviewed 20 patients diagnosed with Fournier's gangrene at our institution from 2003 to 2014 and analysed data. Thirteen patients had diabetes mellitus, two had been diagnosed with liver cirrhosis, and four were chronic alcoholics...

Objective: The outcome of Fournier's gangrene (FG) may be affected by comorbidities, demographics, and choice of treatment modality. We sought to evaluate our institution's management protocol of FG measured by mortality rate (MR) and length of hospital stay (LHS) in a retrospective cohort study. Approach: A database of 20 FG cases at our institution throughout the 2009-2016 study period was assembled by a retrospective review of medical records. A Fournier's Gangrene Severity Index Score (FGSIS) was calculated for each case...

Use of sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SLGT2) inhibitors has been associated with an increased risk of genital infections secondary to increased glycosuria [1]. Our report highlights a case of Fournier's gangrene, the most severe and potentially fatal type of genital infection, which was preceded by multiple episodes of thrush in a man treated with empagliflozin for Type 2 diabetes.

Male pelvic emergencies are uncommon, and symptoms typically include scrotal pain, scrotal enlargement, or a palpable scrotal mass or all of these. Ultrasound is often the first-line modality for evaluation of male pelvic emergencies, which may be stratified into vascular, infectious, or traumatic causes. Entities such as testicular torsion, Fournier gangrene, and testicular dislocation are surgical emergencies and should not be missed or misdiagnosed, as this may cause a significant delay in urgently necessary treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Fournier's gangrene is an infective necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital and perianal regions. Treatment includes aggressive surgical debridement that often results in extensive loss of genital skin. Skin grafts may be used for reconstruction but skin grafting of the male genitalia is diffucult because the penis and scrotum are mobile and deformable. A variety of methods are used to secure skin graft to recipient beds. We used negative pressure therapy (NPT) to secure skin grafts and improve skin graft taking...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate risk factors for mortality in patients with Fournier's gangrene (FG), with emphasis in the Simplified Fournier Gangrene Severe Index Score (SFGSI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study that was carried out from January 2010 to December 2014, with 124 patients treated for FG in a General Hospital. Several clinical and laboratory variables, including SFGSI, were evaluated and correlated with mortality through univariate analysis and logistic regression...

REVIEW
E Comploj, A Pycha
Fournier's gangrene is a rapidly progressing necrotizing fasciitis restricted to the perineal and genital regions. Although rare, it is an acute life-threatening disease, requiring rapid radical surgical debridement and antibiotic treatment, resulting in large soft tissue defects. Various reconstructive methods for defect coverage are applied to satisfactorily reconstitute functionality and esthetics.

A 46-year-old Caucasian male has been transferred to our urology department with a history of septic fever, uncompensated diabetes, pain, and scrotal swelling. On clinical examination, the left inguinal and scrotal area was swollen, tender, and painful; scrotal MR had been performed, showing the catheter tip in scrotal cavity and presence of gas. The case was diagnosed as scrotal abscess with urethroscrotal fistula. He was successfully treated with scrotal incision, drainage, catheter repositioning under fluoroscopic control, antibiotics, and insulin...

OBJECTIVE: Fournier's gangrene is a type of necrotizing soft tissue infection of the perineal, genital and perianal region that has a rapidly progressive and potentially fatal course. In the present study, our goal was to compare the patients submitted to surgical debridement for Fournier Gangrene with Vacuum-asisted Closure (VAC) and without VAC therapy after debridement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 313 patients underwent surgical debridement for FG in our hospital...

Anti-angiogenics have become an important part of the treatment of several types of tumours such as ovarian, breast, lung and colorectal cancer. Necrotising fasciitis has been reported with bevacizumab but no cases have been reported with aflibercept, ramucirumab or regorafenib in patients with colorectal cancer. Necrotising fasciitis is a rare complication affecting one in 5000 bevacizumab users. We report the case of a 64-year-old man with stage IV rectosigmoid cancer under treatment with folinic acid, fluorouracil and irinotecan (FOLFIRI) and aflibercept, who developed a Fournier's gangrene...

BACKGROUND: Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a rapidly evolving necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum and the genital area, the scrotum as it most commonly affects man in the vast majority of cases. It is polymicrobial in origin, due to the synergistic action of anaerobes and aerobes and has a very high mortality. There are many predisposing factors including diabetes mellitus, alcoholism, immunosuppression, renal, and hepatic disease. The prognosis of the disease depends on a lot of factors including but not limited to patient age, disease extent, and comorbidities...

We describe a recent case of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. A 49-year-old man was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of an Anaesthesia and Resuscitation Department because of a Fournier gangrene that derived in a sepsis, ventilator-associated pneumonia, and renal failure. He was under treatment with cefepime and suffered a generalized status epilepticus, so started treatment with phenytoin. The next day he developed a "maculous cutaneous eruption in trunk and lower limbs" compatible with a Stevens-Johnson Syndrome...

Fournier's gangrene is an acute bacterial infection producing necrosis of the perineum and external genitalia that generally affects elderly men. Although skin grafts and flaps are the standard procedure for reconstruction, sometimes wounds can become chronic. Rigenera Protocol is a new technique based on autologous skin micrografts that reactivates and supports wound healing. A 40-year-old male with Fournier's gangrene, due to a rectal microperforation following diarrhoea, was treated with surgical debridement, negative pressure wound therapy and subsequently coverage with skin grafts...

BACKGROUND: Fournier gangrene due to advanced rectal cancer is a rapidly progressive gangrene of the perineum and buttocks. Emergency surgical debridement of necrotic tissue is crucial, and secondary surgery to resect tumors is necessary for wound healing. However, pelvic exenteration damages the pelvic floor, increasing the likelihood of herniation of internal organs into the infectious wound. The management of pelvic exenteration for rectal cancer with Fournier gangrene has not yet been established...
