The FDA said Fournier’s gangrene is an extremely rare but life-threatening bacterial infection of the tissue under the skin that surrounds muscles, nerves, fat, and blood vessels of the perineum.
The bacteria usually get into the body through a cut or break in the skin, where they quickly spread and destroy the tissue they infect. The agency said having diabetes is a risk factor for developing Fournier’s gangrene.
