Abstract

Necrotizing fasciitis is a life-threating soft tissue infection primarily involving the superficial fascia and usually occurs after surgical treatment, trauma and varicella. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an extremely rare pathogen to cause necrotizing fasciitis and only a few cases have been reported in children. We report an autopsy case of necrotizing fasciitis due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa after vaccination in a 7-monthold boy.
