Abstract

Gas gangrene continues to cause significant morbidity and mortality. This monograph reviews the entire spectrum of clostridial infection, including its etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, current recommended treatment, and prophylaxis. The early diagnosis of gas gangrene is paramount, as delay in aggressive combined treatment may result in death.
