= mortification; n.
the death of some or all of the cells in an organ or tissue, caused by disease, physical or chemical injury, or interference with the blood supply (see gangrene). Caseous necrosis occurs in pulmonary tuberculosis, the lung tissue becoming soft, dry, and cheeselike. Coagulative necrosis – the commonest form of necrosis – occurs in almost all organs (except the brain) and results in a solid mass of dead tissue. Colliquative necrosis occurs in the brain, where the absence of stroma (connective tissue) results in total liquefaction of necrotic tissue.
necrotic adj.
