What is Pathology - What is liquefactive necrosis, and how does it happen?
Liquefactive necrosis is defined by the necrotic tissue softening to the point that it becomes a pastelike mush or watery waste. The action of hydrolytic enzymes released from dead cells, as in a brain infarct, or from the lysosomes of invading inflammatory cells, as in an abscess, causes tissue liquefaction.
