Abstract

Cervical necrotizing fasciitis is an unusual encounter in the general surgical practice, but is a life threatening condition requiring early recognition and adequate surgical treatment. Necrotizing fasciitis which holds deep fascia and subcutaneous fatty tissue including primarily surface fascia along with vein and nerve structure, is a fast progressing soft tissue infection of which mortality and morbidity is high. It is rarely seen in head and neck zone and usually develops after tooth and pharynx originated infections. This infection originating from a dental related source is rare. Early diagnosis, proper antibiotic therapy and surgical debridement form the factors affecting the success in cervical necrotizing fasciitis treatment.
