What is Pathology - What does coagulative necrosis look like?
The rapid termination of basic cell activity induced by a blockade of most enzymes is known as coagulative necrosis. There is no tissue dissolving since the action of hydrolytic cytoplasmic enzymes is also stopped (i.e., there is little autolysis). As a result, the general shape of the dead tissue is conserved. The necrotic tissue is paler than normal and has a boiled meat appearance.
