Necrotizing Fasciitis Research
In 2011, Drs Rausch and Foca wrote an exciting report focusing on necrotizing fasciitis in a pediatric patient. At the end of the report, the authors pointed out that all pediatricians must be aware of the possibility of severe infections in pediatric patients with necrotizing fasciitis who had vascular lymphatic malformations.
In 2012, a team of scientists and surgeons from Turkey wrote a comprehensive collective review on necrotizing fasciitis. At the end of their report, they emphasize that early diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis may be life saving.
At the Imperial College in London, United Kingdom, 5 scholars wrote a comprehensive 5-year review of necrotizing fasciitis. They emphasize that necrotizing fasciitis is a life-threatening disease that is often difficult to diagnose. The authors guide the readers to make the correct diagnosis as soon as possible in order to save lives.
