A Brush with Death
Necrotising Fasiictis (flesh eating bacteria) is a nasty and deadly problem, that can happen to you. This book is about one such case.
You complain about having the flu, and go about your normal routine. Fever sets in, and an unusual redness develops around the area of injury. Sometimes the pain is so bad, that you no longer feel it. At the hospital, surgeons plunge into a desperate, exhausting battle against the disease, fervently hacking away flesh that becomes rotten almost as fast as scalpels can cut it away. The prognosis is very poor, and the struggle for life continues until death or disfigurement comes - or maybe both.
This is a tale of a vicious disease that has a preference for human flesh, an appetite that surpasses the worst of nightmares. However, this is not a Hollywood horror movie. This one is made by Mother Nature, and is very, very real. .....
This is a story of, one such ...... real case.
