Rights and Permissions

Fournier's gangrene is an uncommon infection of the genital, perineal and perianal regions. The infection is both dramatic in nature and highly lethal in course. The mortality of the disease is high, despite the advancements in management. Multiorgan dysfunction is one of the predictors of severity and mortality of the disease. The association of acute renal failure and Fournier's gangrene is not often discussed; hence, this study is being presented. This study comprised of six patients presented with Fournier gangrene and associated acute renal failure.
