Title: A systematic review of necrotising fasciitis in children from its first description in 1930 to 2018
Online publication date: 8-Nov-2019
Language: english
Abstract: Necrotising fasciitis is a rapidly progressing soft-tissue infection with a low incidence that carries a relevant risk of morbidity and mortality. Although necrotising fasciitis is often fatal in adults, its case fatality rate seems to be lower in children. A highly variable clinical presentation makes the diagnosis challenging, which often results in misdiagnosis and time-delay to therapy.
