We present the first report of Leriche syndrome associated with Fournier's gangrene. We used a modified pudendal thigh flap in the treatment of an extensive perineoscrotal soft-tissue defect successfully. We propose this new robust flap as an addition to the existing reconstructive armamentarium and draw attention to the coexistence of Leriche syndrome and Fournier's gangrene. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc.
