Neonatal scrotal wall necrotizing fasciitis (Fournier’s gangrene): A rare clinical entity
Fournier’s gangrene is mainly seen in adults but here we report a case of 12 days neonate with Fournier’s gangrene. The newborn presented to paediatric OPD for evaluation of scrotal swelling. On examination gangrene was found on the scrotum. Patient was treated with broad spectrum antibiotics and local debridement of gangrenous scrotal tissue. Wound got healed by secondary intention and patient was discharged alive and healthy. The outcome of treatment of Fournier’s gangrene in neonate is good.
