Gas gangrene in amputated arm of injured soldier In WWI, most cases of gas gangrene were caused by infection with Clostridium perfringens, and Group A streptococcus. Other bacterial infections were occasionally found, as well. The infecting bacteria could be pretty easily differentiated by the type of pus that was exuded or found when the necrotic tissue was cut into. C. perfringens produced very thin, “dishwater”-like pus, and smelled “sweetly putrid”. The other bacterias produced much…
