The condition is called necrotizing mylitis and results from the
Streptococcus spp. that is common to the respiratory system, makes
its way to a wound and finds an anaeroic conditions. A library search
at any major university or city library should provide enough
information. If not, I can do a search for you and point you
toward the right sources. One possible source would be symptoms and
diagnosis type med book. New microbiology books may have something....
especially clinical micro books (for both topics....Legionnaire's
can be found in any intro micro book).
