Abstract: Necrotizing fasciitis is a progressive infection of fascia that is associated with necrosis of subcutaneous tissues. It has high morbidity and mortality rates because the diagnosis is often not made early enough to institute the aggressive treatment that is necessary to prevent death. We herein report a case of necrotizing fasciitis of the anterior abdominal wall following a myomectomy in an obese diabetic female that was diagnosed early enough to allow for a favorable outcome following aggressive antibiotic therapy and surgical debridement.
