Title

Management of unusual genital lymphedema complication after Fournier's gangrene: a case report

Authors
Published in BMC Surgery. 2012, vol. 12, p. 26
Abstract Fournier's gangrene is a bacterial infection characterized by necrotizing fasciitis, skin and soft tissue involvement, and eventually myositis of the perineal region. Aggressive debridement of devitalized tissue and overlying skin is of paramount importance, but often leaves large defects to be reconstructed. The present case reports successful extensive perineal defects coverage following Fournier's gangrene and management of subsequent penile lymphoedema impairing sexual function in a young patient.
