Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a progressive infection of skin and soft tissues that can involve anterior abdominal wall, perianal region, scrotum, and extremities, but bilateral breast involvement is extremely rare. To prevent morbidity and mortality, early diagnosis and proper treatment are essential. We report a case of NF of the bilateral breast in a 20-year-old female patient who presented with sudden onset of pain and blackish discoloration of skin of both the breasts.
