Özet

An inguinal and perianal localization of Fournier's gangrene (FG) in a 15-month-old boy as a complication of the varicella infection is discussed. This is the first presentation of the disease as a complication of the varicella rashes. There were already 57 pediatric FG cases resulting from other causes that had been presented in the medical literature. Copyright 2002 Elsevier Science (USA). All rights reserved.
