  1. emphysematous gangrene

    Emphysematous gangrene refers to a severe, rapidly progressing, and potentially fatal condition characterized by extensive necrosis (death of body tissue) resulting in gangrene, often accompanied by the production of gas in tissues. This condition occurs due to infection caused by gas-producing bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens. This causes inflammatory tissue damage leading to gangrene, characterized by black, decaying, or already dead tissue.
