Necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum and external genitalia is a life-threatening infective gangrene. Primarily, it is seen in adults but it may be seen at any ages. It is rare in neonates and infants. Early surgical debridement with appropriate antibiotics and aggressive supportive care gives good results. It is a preventable condition to some extent. We are reporting here a case of Fournier's gangrene in a 25-day-old male neonate who was treated aggressively with broad-spectrum antibiotics and early surgical debridement. Even though no obvious precipitating cause was identified, hygiene was thought to be the inciting factor.
