Abstract: Case series of gas gangrene in a tertiary care hospital Abstract INTRODUCTION- Clostridial gas gangrene (GG) or clostridial myonecrosis is a life-threatening soft tissue infection caused by anaerobic, spore-forming clostridium subspecies, associated with a high mortality, often necessitating amputation to control the infection. Clinical suspicion along with prompt and early microbiological differential diagnosis is essential for presumptive diagnosis of gas gangrene. MATERIALS AND METHOD-Five patients diagnosed with gas gangrene were included in present study. The clinical presentation, results of investigation and treatment outcome of the cases were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS-Age of patients ranged from 40 to 50 years. Two patients presented with H/O RTA, two with trauma and fifth with thrombosis. Direct smear of the specimen was positive for Clostridial group of organisms. Two patients were managed with extensive local debridement and antibiotics whereas three underwent amputation of affected limb. CONCLUSIONS- This study emphasizes the importance of suspicion of the possibility of occurrence of gas gangrene in wounds contaminated with soil, because the pathognomonic sign appears at an advanced stage of infection. Surgical and medical treatment together with the resuscitation measures may be life-saving when applied in a timely manner.
Keywords: Keywords- Gas gangrene, Amputation, Crepitus, Clostridium.
