Abstract:

Cervical necrotizing fasciitis is an unusual encounter in the general surgical practice, but is a life-threatening condition requiring early recognition and adequate surgical treatment. We present the case of a 65 year old male patient referred to our department from a General Hospital. Large excisions of both superficial and deep cervical fascia were required together with necrotic skin on a very large surface. Rapid recovery with early sterilization allowed adequate skin grafting with good results. We advocate for aggressive debridment with excision in viable healthy tissue, with no concern for the future reconstruction followe by early grafting of the skin defect.

KEY WORDS: CERVICAL FASCIITIS NECROTIZING
