Ischemic Necrosis

  • Unlike the other terminology described in this section, Ischemic Necrosis does not refer to a particular morphology of necrosis but instead references a particular necrotic etiology. Ischemic Necrosis refers to necrosis of a tissue due to the etiological process of ischemia. In nearly all tissues, Ischemic Necrosis results in a pattern of Coagulative Necrosis except for the CNS in which it manifests as a pattern of Liquifactive Necrosis. It should be pointed out that necrotic areas caused by ischemia are termed "Infarctions".
