A Case of Necrotising Fasciitis in a Medical Ward (AMU)

We report an unusual case of a 78-year-old lady presenting with sepsis secondary to cellulitis of her right forearm which she had initially sustained when falling on her driveway and hitting her right arm. Surgical management was undertaken. However, due to an inappropriate referral, delays for the life threatening surgery were done. She was managed in ITU following her surgery with multiple complications during the recovery period and was discharged subsequently following clinical improvement.
