Fournier gangrene due to Rhizobium Radiobacter

Volkan Sen, Pinar Sen, Mehmet Oguz Sahin

Abstract


Fournier’s gangrene (FG) is a life-threatening, rapidly progressing acute necrotizing fasciitis of perianal, genitourinary and perineal areas. The most common isolated pathogens are E.coli, Streptococcus and Enterococcus in tissue and abscess cultures. However we present the first Rhizobium radiobacter FG in this case. A 47-year-old man presented with black necrotizing area with malodorous pus drainage in the bottom of the right hemiscrotum. Intravenous imipenem and Clindamycin were started prophylactically; all necrotizing tissues were debrided and right hemiscrotectomy was performed. Rhizobium radiobacter was isolated from tissue and abscess cultures. After successful treatment patient was discharged posteroperative 18th day. The combination therapy of early and totally surgical debridement of necrotic tissues and appropriate antibiotic use are adequate to control Rhizobium radiobacter infection in FG.
