ABSTRACT
Fournier’s gangrene is a polymicrobial infection of perineal and scrotal regions that manifests as a rapidly progressive necrotizing fasciitis. Because of the importance of targeted antibiotic therapy, awareness of the spectrum of microbes that might be associated with lesion is imperative. Here we report an extremely rare but rapidly progressive case of necrotizing fasciitis associated with the Staphylococcus lungdunensis. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2016; 6(3): 132-135.
