Brief introduction of streptococcal necrosis

Streptococcal necrosis is an acute suppurative disease caused by β-hemolytic streptococcus infection, which is characterized by skin flake necrosis, so it is also called acute streptococcal skin necrosis. β-hemolytic streptococcus has strong pathogenicity, which can produce hemolysin in the culture medium, so that wide and transparent hemolytic rings appear around the colony. Invasion of human body can quickly destroy local tissues and spread around. Entering the blood can lead to hemolytic reaction. At the beginning of this disease, local skin redness, swelling and pain are the main manifestations, which are very similar to erysipelas, and are called necrotic erysipelas and hospital necrosis. It can occur after limb trauma, and there is no obvious history of trauma. After the advent of penicillin, this disease has been rare.
