Abstract

Necrotizing bacterial dermohypodermitis with necrotizing fasciitis (DHBN-FN) is a necrotizing infection of the hypodermis, the muscular aponeurosis and secondarily the dermis. The infection sometimes spreads in a fulminating manner along the aponeuroses. It constitutes a medical-surgical emergency. It is a rare and serious infection. The mortality remains high reaching 19% to 41%, despite an improvement in surgical techniques and resuscitation. The anterior cervical and thoracic involvement complicating a tooth abscess is exceptional. We report the case of a young woman of 35 years without comorbidity and discuss the clinical, therapeutic and evolutionary aspects through the literature.
