An update on management of necrotizing soft-tissue infections
By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Necrotizing soft-tissue infections, or NSTIs, are fulminant infections that lead to the death of subcutaneous tissues. Severe cases of infection are associated with the risk of mortality, limb loss or tissue loss. Diagnosis at an early stage is important to improve the survival rate. Antibiotic therapy, fluid correction, surgical debridement, wound care and organ support measures could reduce the mortality rate in NSTI. The benefits of novel therapies, such as hyperbaric oxygen and intravenous immunoglobulins, are being explored.

Brides-to-be are getting 'hand-lifts' for the perfect engagement selfie

Dermatology Times
Both dermatologists and patients have expectations of what might result from an office visit.
