Patient Aelection

The data of 3 patients with thigh abscesses that originated from an intra-abdominal pathologic condition and progressed to NF are presented.


Owing to the retrospective design and small case number, no institutional review board approval was necessary. All patients were informed that their data might be used for research, and informed consent was obtained from all patients before surgery.
