Necrotizing fasciitis of abdominal wall

Necrotizing of abdominal wall is a kind of necrotizing soft tissue infection that occurs in the abdominal wall. There are many kinds of pathogenic bacteria. The infection mainly involves the deep and superficial fascia of the abdominal wall, and can also invade the skin, but not the muscles in the early stage. The disease can occur in any part of the abdominal wall (such as the anterior abdominal wall, lateral abdominal wall, inguinal area and posterior abdominal wall), especially in abdominal trauma or surgical incision (wound) and adjacent areas. It can also spread from the infection of hip and perineum, sometimes after small stab injury or insect bite. Necrotizing fasciitis has a rapid onset, rapid progress and dangerous condition. Delayed diagnosis and treatment often leads to death.
