Fournier's gangrene (FG) is a life-threatening, necrotizing infection involving the soft tissues of the scrotal area. Because of potential severe complications, it is important to diagnose the disease as early as possible. We present the CT findings of FG in a young male that came to the Emergency Department for genital pain and tenderness.
