    Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare disease with a high mortality and morbidity rate. The authors report the case of a 52 year old woman with necrotizing fasciitis following abdominal hysterectomy. The early diagnosis and the radical surgery saved her life from this serious type of infection. By describing this case, the authors wish to emphasize their opinion that early diagnosis is essential to survival and the most important aspect of management is early aggressive surgical intervention.
