The LRINEC (Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing Fasciitis) score: a tool for distinguishing necrotizing fasciitis from other soft tissue infections. Crit Care Med . 2004;32(7):1535-1541 The term caseous refers to a type of necrotizing granulomas in which the central necrotic material has a cheese-like consistency . Microscopically, necrotizing granulomas distinctly have central necrosis with a palisaded lymphohistiocytic reaction and a cuff of chronic inflammation (Fig. 1, Fig. 3, Fig. 4) Anaerobic infections range from local abscesses to life-threatening infections. In most of the cases, our own normal flora (i.e. endogenous origin) are involved but in some exogenous sources play a role. Anaerobic infections are normally polymicrobial; these may include obligate aerobes, facultative anaerobes or microaerophiles as concomitant.
