Invasive necrotizing phycomycoses
A case is reported in a 10-year-old boy from California, USA who suffered a degloving injury to the left hip and thigh following a road accident. The wounds were debrided and antibiotics were administered. The patient developed fever and progressive necrosis of the torso and thigh, 5 d after the injury. The left leg became cadaveric 10 d later and left hip disarticulation and abdominal wall debridement revealed full-thickness necrosis.
