Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapid and mortal subcutaneous infection that is observed in the superficial fascia and settles in the tissues between the skin and deep muscle layers.Although its incidence is 0.4 per 100 thousand cases, its overall mortality is as high as 52%. It should be considered when clinically severe pain and systemic toxicity are encountered. It was observed that our case was in septic shock, and the patients clinical condition progressed aggressively in the emergency department follow-up. In this article, a 55-year-old patient who developed necrotizing fasciitis as a result of tenoxicam injection and underwent debridement is presented.
