The fact that a woman’s age affects the future baby, the risk of developing pathologies in him, is known to many: when a pregnant woman is older than 35 years old, the likelihood of mutations in the fetus increases. But it turns out that the age of the father also matters for the health of the child.

Probability of conception

Escherichia coli: benefit or harm

Unusual diseases: necrotic fasciitis

Necrotic fasciitis is an infection that affects the subcutaneous tissue and fascia. (Fascias are membranes of connective tissue covering all organs, vessels covering muscles, tendons.) The disease is very dangerous, and if it is launched, it can even lead to death.

Causes of necrotic fasciitis

As a result, an infectious process develops right under the skin and tissue destruction occurs. Most often, the legs are affected, as well as the perineum and abdominal wall, but the infection can affect other parts of the body.
