Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare disease caused by various types of bacteria, usually in the family of Streptococcus or Staphylococcus. Most of the bacteria in this group cause non-life-threatening diseases such as the sore throat. However, necrotizing fasciitis is a serious infection that destroys skin and muscle tissue and can cause amputation, complicated surgery, and sometimes, death.
This disease has two types: idiopathic fasciitis and secondary necrotizing. Idiopathic NF occurs when there is no known entrance to the body, while secondary NF occurs through clear open wounds. The symptoms are similar and the symptoms of secondary NF often occur far from the original entry point.
The classic symptoms of necrotizing fasciitis include high fever – more than 103 degrees Fahrenheit and severe pain, especially in the legs.

Necrotizing fasciitis is most often contracted due to wound contact with the drain, or in a hospital, such as MRSA. Despite these obvious symptoms, emergency staff and hospitals routinely fail to diagnose or investigate cases of necrotizing fasciitis correctly, so patients suffer from amputation, surgical removal of organs, months in the hospital, and lifelong disability due to medical malpractice and negligence.
