Hi, thank you for writing on healthcare Magic.
With this presentation, I think it is a case of a disease called gas gangrene
. It is rare but not very rare. It is a deadly form of gangrene usually caused by a germ called Clostridium perfringens. The germ is soil-borne and enters the body through a skin breakage (so it not contagious). It leads to death if not treated in 100% of cases.
I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us.
I wish you good health
