Abstract

Necrotizing fasciitis due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa is rare. We report a case of monomicrobial Pseudomonas necrotizing fasciitis and review 37 cases in the literature. The mortality rate was 30%, and most infections occurred in the immunocompromised. Clinicians should consider empiric pseudomonal antibiotic coverage in the severely immunocompromised with potentially necrotizing infections.
