Abstract

Introduction. Grafts and flaps have been widely used to reconstruct scrotal defects due to Fournier's gangrene. Controversy still exists concerning the use of grafts and flaps because of the low protection provided by the grafts and the high volume of the flaps. We describe the use of an expanded groin flap for scrotum reconstruction.
