PMID:  3578439     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Only four patients with clostridia sepsis in association with gynecologic malignancy have been reported, all of whom had prior diagnostic or therapeutic intervention. Our patient is the first documented case of such clostridium sepsis that occurred spontaneously, i.e., without previous trauma, instrumentation, radiation or chemotherapy. The value of aggressive management is reviewed.
