          Abstract

          La gangrena gaseosa de la mama es una enfermedad rara y potencialmente mortal descrita como consecuencia de un traumatismo, por complicaciones infecciosas de la cirugía o por una trombosis venosa. También se ha relacionado ocasionalmente con otras causas tales como la diabetes mellitus, el envenenamiento con monóxido de carbono o la cirugía plástica. Presentamos un caso de gangrena gaseosa de mama en una mujer diabética de 74 años. Esta rara infección representa una emergencia médico-quirúrgica.

          Translated abstract

          Gas gangrene of the breast is a rare and potentially lethal disease following trauma, as a result of infectious complications from surgery or venous thrombosis. Other rare etiologies, such as diabetes mellitus, carbon monoxide poisoning, and plastic surgery, have also been reported as related to this illness. A case of gas gangrene of the breast found in a 74-year-old diabetic woman was presented in this paper. This rare infection is a medical and surgical emergency situation.

          Gas gangrene of the breast: management of a potential life-threatening infection.

          Gas gangrene of the breast is a rare infection and potentially mortal. We report a case of a fast extension of a painful right breast erythema whose starting point was a right parasternal cutaneous abscess. A diagnosis of gas gangrene of the right breast was made. A right mammectomy was carried out in Emergency and an antibiotherapy adapted to the germs was given. Mixed anaerobic and aerobic florae are often responsible for the infection. Its medico-surgical management is an emergency.
