Abstract

Unique treatment of a necrotizing infection of the abdominal wall, using a temporary closure with polyvinyl, led to survival in a patient with a stab wound, who developed extensive abdominal myofascial necrosis. A large abdominal wall defect was repaired later with polypropylene mesh and a split-thickness autograft.
