Necrotizing fasciitis of the breast is extremely rare. This is a report of a 41-year-old woman with idiopathic necrotizing fasciitis of the breast, who was managed successfully with a good index of clinical suspicion, early surgical intervention, parenteral antibiotics, and nutritional support. This helped in further spread of local infection, minimizing the damage to the breast parenchyma.
