stage necrosis of epidermis, subcutaneous layers, fascia,
and musculature of upper lateral leg. Site circumference
is dehydrated, crusted, and erythemic. Possibility of

of local anesthesia (i.e. patient has no perception
of pain at wound site).
Detailed illustration of aforementioned figure. Again,
clearly defined necrotic border reaching through several
layers of tissue. Marked necrosis of muslce (dark regions).
