MANZANI BALDI, J.R. y RODRIGUEZ, G.. Necrotizing bilateral fasciitis of hematogenous dissemination, caused by Staphylococcus Aureus: Pediatric case. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.2, pp.171-175. ISSN 0376-7892.
We present a not very frequent clinical case of fasciitis with miositis and cutaneous necrosis in trunk and thighs, with bilateral and symmetrical presentation and haematogenous dissemination mechanism in a 4 years old girl during the development of sepsis with primary oropharingeal focus, that required to be interned in paediatric intensive care unit. It was necessary and aggressive an precocious surgical treatment, supported by vital life measures and empiric antibiotics, until the final germen diagnosis. The etiologic agent was Staphylococcus aureus. As a result, there were very important aesthetic sequels after several surgical procedures. After 6 years evolution, there wasn't any other similar episode.
