Necrosis is a form a premature cell death that, unlike apoptosis, is not programmed or regulated. This form of cell death most often occurs from conditions in the environment that may result in injuries, infections, hypoxia, toxin exposure, and nutrient deprivation, as well as diseases and disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and epilepsy. The mechanism by which necrotic cell death occurs begins with receptors that cause the cell to swell until the membrane loses its integrity, which results in the cellular material being deposited into the extracellular space. This initiates an inflammatory response and the buildup of dead tissues around the site of the cell death. There are five kinds of buildup, coagulative (a buildup of gel), liquefactive (a buildup of liquid), caseous (a buildup of gel and liquid), fat (resulting from the necrosis of fat tissue), and fibrinoid (the result of vascular damage).
