The term necrotizing soft tissue infections refers to a wide variety of bacterial and fungal skin conditions. The location, depth, and extent of the infection are all considered when describing the condition examples are necrotizing fasciitis and Fourniers gangrene, which are both deep subcutaneous infections. Necrotizing soft tissue infections can result in substantial local tissue loss, tissue necrosis, systemic toxicity, and even mortality, depending on the degree of invasion. Despite improvements in surgery and the development of antibiotics, necrotizing soft tissue infections are known to have fatality rates that range from 6 percent to up to 76 percent. The goals of the current study are to: Understand the clinical characteristics of patients who present with NSTI early diagnosis by imaging study the microbial flora, antibiotic therapy and observe the clinical effects of the debridement.
