Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly spreading soft tissue infection affecting the subcutaneous tissue and underlying fascial layers. Although this infection pattern is commonly seen in adults, it is rarely seen in the neonatal population. Herein, we describe a patient who developed extensive necrotizing fasciitis of the abdominal wall after intestinal resection for necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
