This is due to the lysis of neutrophilsa type of white blood cell, caused by the lecithinases and other toxins released by Clostridium species. Gas gangrene is caused by exotoxin -producing Clostridium species most often C. Gangrenous infection by soil-borne bacteria was common in the combat injuries of soldiers well into the 20th century, because of nonsterile field surgery and the basic nature of care for severe projectile wounds.

Massive infection, gross injury, and depletion of the host’s immune capability result in system-wide sepsis.

Gas gangrene can cause myonecrosis muscle tissue deathgas production, and sepsis. It increases vascular permeability and produces necrotizing activity. Gas gangerne and clostridial myonecrosis are interchangeable terms used to describe an infection of muscle tissue by toxin-producing clostridia. Other causes of myonecrosis include envenomation by snakes of the genus Bothrops family Viperidaeischemic necrosis, caused by vascular blockage e.

Bacteria cause myonecrosis by specific exotoxins.

It can easily be noticed by the large, blackened sores that form, as well as a degree of loud and distinctive crepitus caused by gas escaping the necrotic tissue.

Pediatr Infect Dis J. Bacteria often possess the ability to create exotoxins to assist them in competing with other microbes in their natural environments. This enables the microbes to rapidly proliferate, far in excess of the immune system’s capability to defend, as prokaryotic bacteria possess a far greater capacity gangfene multiplication than the host’s immune system.
