OBJECTIVE To reconstruct the defect secondary to Fournier's gangrene, which is an infection localized in the perineum and the lower abdominal region, characterized by large tissue loss following debridement. A large tissue loss caused by Fournier's gangrene brings with repair problems. The primary goal is to achieve cosmetically and functionally successful results. The purpose of this article is to share the results of reconstruction of large penoscrotal defects with internal pudendal artery perforator (IPAP) flap.
