Perineal gangrene (synergistic gangrene), an age‐old severe infectious disorder, was more completely described by Dr Robert Robertson (1742–1829) in 1777, providing much needed data on the clinical features well before Dr Jean Alfred Fournier's (1832–1914) account in 1883. Robertson’s historically overlooked and detailed narrative is presented with implications, in part, refuting some conclusions made by Fournier 100 years later.
