    The importance of recognising and making appropriate referral: Case of Necrotising fasciitis

    Zaw Thant Lwin* and Zen Yong

    We report an unusual case of a 78 year old lady presenting with sepsis secondary to necrotising soft tissue infection of her right forearm which she had initially sustained when falling on her driveway and hitting her right arm.

    First admission was in Acute Medical Unit (AMU) rather than Surgical ward. This was, in fact, an inappropriate referral that delayed for the emergency surgery. Eventually,She was managed in Intensive Care medicine (ICU)following her surgery with multiple complications during the recovery period and was discharged subsequently following clinical improvement.
