Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare, often fatal soft tissue infection. It still remains a confusing entity because of the nomenclature and multiple subtypes described in the past. An interesting case study of a patient with necrotizing fasciitis secondary to nonclostridial gas gangrene is presented. A comprehensive review of necrotizing fasciitis, its disease process and treatment modalities will be discussed.
