The authors report a clinical case of gas gangrene in a rare anatomic location in a 79-year-old woman, admitted because 3 days earlier she had developed a painful swelling with erythematous cutis in her right iliac fossa and suffered from a seriously increasing fever. The physical examination showed a large area of gas gangrene. In accordance with international literature, excellent results have been obtained by adopting an early multiple therapy (including surgical debridement, intensive therapy, antibiotic treatment and hyperbaric oxygen treatment).
