conference abstract
Abstract:
Necrotising fasciitis (NF) is a rare manifestation of invasive Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) infection associated with a substantial risk of death or disability. Hypothesising that host genetic factors might contribute, we sought to identify rare deleterious variants contributing to NF susceptibility.
