Abstract

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is an uncommon, life-threatening soft tissue infection characterized by rapidly spreading inflammation and necrosis of the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and fascia. We report a case of NF as a complication of cardiac catheterization. Familiarity with this entity may lead to earlier diagnosis and initiation of appropriate therapy.
