Core Tip The reported incidence of Fournier’s gangrene (FG) has increased dramatically, while the reported incidence of rectal cancer-induced FG is unknown but is extremely low. Therapeutic options are more complex than for other forms of FG. First, the causative rectal tumor should be removed - survival with rectal cancer resection is reported as 100%, while with colostomy it is only 80%. Second, the timing of the oncological treatment should be adjusted to the resolution of the FG and sometimes for the healing of plastic reconstructive procedures commonly needed for the reconstruction of large perineal, scrotal and lower abdominal wall defects.
