Necrotizing Fasciitis is a rare life-threatening bacterial infection characterized by a rapidly spreading inflammation resulting in necrosis of the subcutaneous tissue and superficial fascia. While there are a variety of bacteria that can cause this infection, early recognition and intervention is imperative for survival. Case studies vary from an insect bite, dental work, small puncture to someone swimming in the water especially on the Gulf, Pamlico Sound, and the Chesapeake Bay.
