Summaries for Necrotizing Fasciitis

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:42 Necrotizing fasciitis is a serious bacterial infection of the skin, subcutaneous tissue (tissue just beneath the skin) and fascia. the infection can be sudden and fast-spreading. the bacteria involved enters the body through an external injury and attacks the surrounding tissues, eventually causing them to die. early signs include flu-like symptoms and redness or pain around the infection site, followed by very high fever, severe pain, swelling and blistering. if the infection is not treated promptly, it may cause multiple organ failure and death. treatment typically includes intravenous antibiotics; surgery to remove infected and dead tissue; hyperbaric oxygen therapy; and intravenous immune globulin therapy. last updated: 5/16/2012

MalaCards based summary: Necrotizing Fasciitis is related to gas gangrene and diabetic ketoacidosis. An important gene associated with Necrotizing Fasciitis is SPEG (SPEG complex locus), and among its related pathways are Complement and coagulation cascades and Type II diabetes mellitus. The compounds monoethylglycinexylidide and ximelagatran have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and breast.

CDC:2 Group A Streptococcus (group A strep, GAS) bacteria can live in a person's nose and throat. The bacteria are spread through contact with droplets from an infected person's cough or sneeze. If you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching something that has these droplets on it, you may become ill. If you drink from the same glass or eat from the same plate as the sick person, you could also become ill. It is also possible for group A strep bacteria to spread from contact with sores from a group A strep skin infection.
