Abstract

Cinical Image: Necrotising Fasciitis of the Hand

Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare condition. Due to the agressivity of the infection and the amputation rate, it is very important to be aware of this diagnostic and do a proper surgical debridement. We describe a clinical case of a patient with a necrotizing fasciitis that needed two fingers amputation. After the antibiotic treatment and a second surgical debridement we performed a skin graft. The follow up at 6 months show a good function of the hand.
