Abstract

Necrotising fasciitis is a potentially devastating soft tissue infection with a significant fatality rate. Streptococcus is commonly associated, although the cause may be polymicrobial. Early recognition is essential and aggressive surgical intervention may be required to prevent the rapid spread of infection along fascial planes. We report an unusual case of necrotising fasciitis of the eyelids with spontaneous limitation of the area of necrosis.
