Figure 0001: Injury three weeks after admission showing extensive soft-tissue and muscle loss in the left lower extremity.

Mentions: Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas. Appropriate antibiotic therapy was commenced. Due to the progressive worsening of left leg wound and medical clinical condition, the patient was transferred to the department of Plastic Surgery for further management 20 days after the injury. He underwent serial surgical debridements to remove the infected and necrotic tissue. The extensive soft tissue loss involved the anterior, lateral and superficial posterior muscle compartments of the left lower limb with exposure of the tibia and fibula (Figures 1 and 2). The dorsal and plantar surfaces of the foot were uninjured.
