Necrotising Fasciitis is most commonly caused by staph aureous of strep A, but there are other causitive organisms.
I've looked after maybe half a dozen patients with it, and have heard about other cases through colleagues. It's not contagious, but can move unbelievably fast and is devastating.
The National Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation webpage (http://www.nnff.org/nnff_survivors.htm
) has survivor stories and some really
scary before/during/after pictures, particularly Dan Morsette (http://www.nnff.org/survivors/dan_morsette/dan.htm
), Ruth Hunter Damron (http://www.nnff.org/survivors/ruth_d...uth_damron.htm
), and Tracey Nesbit's pages(http://www.nnff.org/survivors/tracy_n/tracy_n.htm
