Necrotising infections Acute infections such as necrotising fasciitis can cause rapid tissue loss in a very short time. They have polymicrobial aetiology, and the classic Lancefield group A haemolytic streptococci may be present in only 15% of cases. After adequate resuscitation, appropriate antibiotics and prompt surgical debridement of affected areas may be life saving, and the patient would need a period of intensive support. Significant tissue destruction can occur in minutes, highlighting the importance of rapid debridement, and subsequently large body surface areas may require surgical reconstruction, most often with split skin grafts.

On the basis that such treatment would help him, he designed and made a hyperthermia system from spare parts at home. He fitted a large industrial garbage container with the heating element of an old electric frying pan as well as a garden pond pump for circulation. He took hot baths in this device for two hours every other day. All went well until the day of admission, when the water overheated and he lost consciousness. He was discharged, well, after two days, insisting that he had devised an excellent system apart from forgetting to install a thermostat.

Occasionally, wounds may be allowed to heal by secondary intention, where areas of skin loss are initially replaced by granulation tissue. The skin defect continues to heal as a result of proliferation or migration of epidermal cells within and around the wound and by contraction of the wound by specialised cells (myofibroblasts) within the granulation tissue. Healing by secondary intention is slow and may lead to contractures, scarring, and restriction of movements. Where skin defects are too large for skin apposition, and healing by secondary intention is inappropriate, skin grafts may be used.
