Fournier’s gangrene refers to a rare perineal infection with fulminant evolution towards multiorgan failure if no surgical treatment is quickly instaured. It mainly affects immunocompromised patients. Very few cases of Fournier’s gangrene circumscribed to the penis in young healthy patients were published to date. We treated a rare case of a penile Fournier’s gangrene in a young healthy man.
