Background:  Laboratory risk indicator for necrotizing fasciitis (LRINEC score) is a simple laboratory tool used to distinguish between necrotizing soft‐tissue infections (NSTI) and other soft‐tissue infections. A LRINEC score of ≥6 is considered as denoting a high risk of necrotizing fasciitis. A certain LRINEC score might also be associated with mortality and other outcomes of patients with NSTI. 
Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing Fasciitis score for early diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis in Darwin
TLDR
This work aims to assess the diagnostic efficacy of the LRINEC score in the population of the Northern Territory of Australia and uses six routine biochemical variables to aid early diagnosis of Necrotizing Fasciitis.
Laboratory Risk Indicators for Necrotizing Fasciitis and Associations with Mortality
TLDR
The Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing Fasciitis score has been verified as a useful diagnostic tool for detecting necrotizing fasciitis and might help predict mortality in NF.
The laboratory risk indicator for necrotizing fasciitis (LRINEC) scoring: the diagnostic and potential prognostic role
TLDR
Beside its diagnostic role, LRINEC scoring could predict worse hospital outcomes in patients with NF and simply identify the high-risk patients, however, further prospective studies are needed to support this finding.
Validation of LRINEC (Laboratory Risk Indicators for Diagnosis of Necrotizing Fasciitis) Scoring System for the Diagnosis of Necrotizing Fasciitis
TLDR
The LRINEC score is an impressive diagnostic tool to distinguish necrotized fasciitis from other severe soft tissue infections, but it is not useful for early recognition of necrotizing fAsciitis.
Necrotizing fasciitis: diagnostic and prognostic value of laboratory risk indicator for necrotizing fasciitis score
TLDR
Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI) were first described in the Hippocratic era and they have variable etiology, clinical presentations and severity, and it is very important to diagnose the early change.
Correlation of the laboratory risk indicators for necrotizing fasciitis (LRINEC) score with the clinical features and surgical management of necrotizing soft tissue infections
TLDR
The LRINEC score is a robust score capable of detecting even clinically early cases of necrotizing fasciitis, and its utility in early surgical management of NSTI is demonstrated.

LRINEC: An Objective Scoring System as a tool for early diagnosis of Necrotizing Fasciitis
TLDR
LRINEC scoring system has a better positive predictive value in identifying the onset of necrotizing fasciitis and risk strategizing of the patients with severe soft tissue infections.

The LRINEC (Laboratory Risk Indicator for Necrotizing Fasciitis) score: A tool for distinguishing necrotizing fasciitis from other soft tissue infections*
TLDR
The LRINEC score, based on laboratory tests routinely performed for the evaluation of severe soft tissue infections, is a robust score capable of detecting even clinically early cases of necrotizing fasciitis.
[Necrotizing fasciitis].
TLDR
Necrotizing fasciitis has changed considerably over time, and today it sees multibacterial infections in polymorbid or immunocompromised patients.
Determinants of mortality for necrotizing soft-tissue infections.
TLDR
Early debridement of NSTi was associated with a significant decrease in mortality, and S. pyogenes infection was the most common cause of monomicrobial NSTI, but was not associated with an increased mortality.
Necrotizing soft tissue infections. Risk factors for mortality and strategies for management.
TLDR
Necrotizing soft tissue infections represent a group of highly lethal infections best treated by early and repeated extensive debridement and broad-spectrum antibiotics and Hyperbaric oxygen appears to offer the advantage of early wound closure.
Clinical manifestations, microbiology and prognosis of 42 patients with necrotizing fasciitis.
Forty-two cases of necrotizing fasciitis (NF) surgically confirmed between January 1991 and October 1995 were retrospectively reviewed. This was done in order to describe the underlying diseases,
Role of early and extensive surgery in the treatment of severe necrotizing soft tissue infection
TLDR
Of 26 patients with systemic manifestations of sepsis, 16 survivors responded well to initial surgical debridement, and Predisposing factors and site of infection did not affect outcome.
Aggressive surgical management of necrotizing fasciitis serves to decrease mortality: a retrospective study.
TLDR
Early recognition and expeditious initial wide excision and debridement along with appropriate antibiotic coverage and support of systemic effects of necrotizing fasciitis serve to decrease morbidity and mortality.
Fulminant group A streptococcal necrotizing fasciitis: clinical and pathologic findings in 7 patients.
TLDR
Patients with clinical features of necrotizing fasciitis should have a deep incisional biopsy specimen obtained from the central area of ecchymotic, necrotic plaques to confirm the diagnosis.
Streptococcal necrotising fasciitis: comparison between histological and clinical features.
TLDR
The two clinical types showed remarkable similarities, with inflammation and necrosis from epidermis to subcutaneous fat in both types, and a quantitative difference in the degree of thrombosis may alone be responsible for the varying clinical features and response to antibiotics.
