INTRODUCTION
Fournier’s gangrene is described as necrotizing soft tissue infection originating from or limited to the genitals or perineum irrespective of gender.
CASE REPORT
We report a case of 50 years over male presented to the emergency room with fever pain and discharge from perianal and scrotal region since 5 days. At debridement a foreign body was observed. This association is uncommon.
CONCLUSION
Fournier’s gangrene in a non-vegetarian person, foreign body should always be ruled out.
