Abstract
Streptococcus pneumoniae is an uncommon cause of skin and soft tissue infections. Streptococcus pneumoniae skin and soft tissue infections develop mainly in patients with underlying chronic illness or those immunocompromised by drug or alcohol abuse. A 66-yearold patient was admitted to hospital with fever and extensive infection of the tissues around the left ankle. Diagnosis was made of necrotizing fascitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae . We report a case of pneumococcal necrotizing fascitis in an immunocompetent patient.
Key Words: Necrotizing fascitis, Streptococcus pneumoniae
