Abstract

Three cases of cervical necrotizing fasciitis are presented. One case was odontogenic in origin and two were due to pharyngeal infectious. Bacteria cultured represented multiple bacterial species. Airway control was necessary early, as was wide surgical exploration of the fascial spaces of the neck with re-exploration as necessary. Intensive medical support was crucial to prevent or treat complications. Cervical necrotizing fasciitis has an overall mortality rate of 30 per cent at the University of Bern.
