Hemivulvectomía radical por gangrena de fournier en mujer con antecedente de radioterapia pélvica
Resumen: The Fournier’s Gangrene is a necrotizing infection which is located in the perineal area. It ́s a severe infection, which involves a quick evolution to advanced stages where a high morbimortality rate is associated. However, it often tends to be underdiagnosed in early stages. The most important in the diagnosis is a high clinical suspicion and subsequent surgical treatment which is base on a desbridalment and exeresis of the affected tissues. In addition, the association of broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy and nutritional support are crucial. This report reviews a clinical case of Fournier's Gangrene, in a patient with a history of radiation induced cystitis and pubic osteitis after pelvic radiotherapy, diagnosed and treated with a radical hemivulvectomy, antibiotic therapy and lavages in our Hospital.
