A:
Clostridial myonecrosis, also called gas gangrene, is a bacterial infection caused by Clostridium perfringens bacteria. It produces gas in tissues in gangrene.

Myonecrosis is a condition of necrotic damage, specific to muscle tissue. Bacteria can cause myonecrosis through specific exotoxins. These microorganisms are opportunistic and enter the body through significant skin breakage.

Ischemic necrosis, tumors, disseminated intravascular coagulation or other thromboses can also trigger clostridial myonecrosis.
