Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to determine the body perception and self-esteem status of patients with Fournier's gangrene (FG) using the Body Cathexis scale (BCS) and Rosenberg's Depressed Mood subscale (RSES). Validity of the FG Severity index (FGSI), designed to determine disease severity in these patients, has also been evaluated.
