Necrotising fasciitis are uncommon and remain a devastating disease, with an overall incidence of 0.24-0.4 per 100,000 adults [1]. Delays in instigation of appropriate treatment are associated with significant long-term morbidity with mortality ranging from 9% to more than 25% [2]. Early and repeated debridement of affected planes in combination with use of broad-spectrum antibiotics improves overall outcome [3]. This case study looked at a sudden incidence of a superbug which had consumed 17-20cm wide and 4-5cm deep of flesh within two days of presentation of illness in a 43 year old female.
