We describe the case of necrotizing gangrene in a 52-year-old man, who came to our observation because of fever, pain and a wide phlegmonous lesion in the perianal region. The patient had a history of recurrent perianal fistula, previously treated surgically more times. We focalized our attention on eziopathogenetic hypothesis and on multimodality treatment, including: surgical debridement, antibiotics, and hyperbaric oxygen. Finally, we emphasize the role of an early diagnosis.
