Abstract

Necrotising fasciitis is a fulminant and rapidly progressive infection of the superficial fascia and subcutaneous tissue. It is rare in newborn. Trunk is the commonest site of involvement in newborns. Early diagnosis and prompt surgical debridement is the preferred treatment. Debridement in NF leads to a large raw area which may not heal by primary intention and may a split thickness skin graft for healing. Presence of minimum subcutaneous fat, loose skin and large raw area at donor site like back in some neonate poses difficulty for harvesting of skin graft. In such neonates allograft make a valuable option temporarily. Herein we report a case of a neonate with NF in whom post debridement raw area was covered with allograft from mother.
