Venous Gas Embolism in Necrotizing Fasciitis of the Lower Limb Presenting as Acute Limb Ischemia: A Case Report

1. Abstract
A woman presented to the emergency room of our hospital with intense pain in the right leg, which was presumed to be acute limb ischemia. A duplex ultrasonography and Angio-Computed tomography scan confirmed a condition of ischemia, detected the presence of subcutaneous gas in the right leg and air bubbles in the femoral vein, raising the possibility of necrotising fasciitis [NF].
