Fournier’s gangrene in children: Report of two cases
Fournier’s gangrene as an infectious necrotizing fascitis of the genitalia is a rare urologic emergency. Pediatric cases have been successfully managed with a more conservative surgical approach and have had a significant lower mortality rate compared to adults. In spite of this fact we report two cases in two 6 and 7 year old boys following circumcision which ended up in death. Failure in treatment was due to late referring and diabetes in one of them.
