Description: Caption:
Captured in a clinical setting, this image depicts a close view of a 4-month old female’s left knee, revealing the gangrenous condition of this region, due to an infection known as meningococcemia, caused by the bacterium, Neisseria meningitidis. This infection causes arterial occlusions, which in turn, cause ischemic insults to develop with ensuing gangrene of the affected body regions. See PHIL 1334 through 1338, for additional views of this young patient’s condition.
