A Coagulative necrosis heart, liver, kidney
B Liquefactive necrosis brain
C Caseous necrosis tuberculosis, fungi
D Enzymatic fat pancreas
E Fibrinoid immunologic injuries, small blood vessel vasculitis, vegetations in rheumatic heart dis and libman-sacks
F Gummatous tertiary syphilis
G Gangrenous dry ischemic coagulative

This is transmural ischemia of inferior wall
Persistence of ischemic cardiac pain or complete cardiac muscle ischemia for longer than 30minutes is associated with progressive myocyte death in affected vascular territory
Within the infarcted myocytes, macromolecules first denature (rather than undergoing immediate enzymatic degradation), leading to coagulative necrosis
