Post circumcision Fournier’s gangrene in an infant: A case report
Fournier’s gangrene is a rare life-threatening condition that is characterized by rapid necrotizing spread from the scrotum and perineal area along facial planes to the abdominal wall, the flanks and the upper thighs. We present a case report of post-circumcision Fournier’s gangrene in an infant that was associated with spontaneous rupture of the lower pole of the left scrotum. This report highlights the need for practitioners of circumcision to be skillful in the procedure, use sterile instruments for it and adhere to standard infection prevention and control measures in health facilities.
