Abstract

Fournier gangrene can have devastating consequences. Often in the male, the testicles become exposed and demand both a functional and esthetic coverage. Local medial thigh cutaneous flaps usually still are available and have evolved to become a preferred solution. The medial circumflex femoral artery perforator (MCFAP) flap based on musculocutaneous perforators of the gracilis muscle represents yet another one of these options. As with all muscle perforator flaps, no muscle need be expended. A case report illustrates the role of the MCFAP flap for creation of a neoscrotum.
