Abstract

Herein we report a case of gas gangrene of the neck and mediastinum in a poorly managed Type II diabetic with concomitant chronic renal failure and a recent history of mucormycosis. Despite the burden of co-morbidities and the gravity of the illness, the patient was successfully treated and remained free of complications in the long term.
