What is Gangrene?

Description of the Disease

Gangrene is a serious complication in which tissues begin to decay due to a lack of blood supply or infection. This condition can be dangerous and requires medical intervention.


  • Dry gangrene
  • Wet gangrene
  • Gas gangrene


Symptoms of gangrene may include fever, pain, swelling, discoloration, and a tingling sensation in the affected area.


Gangrene can be caused by tissue necrosis, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, infection, or other medical conditions.


Diagnosing gangrene typically involves a physical examination, laboratory tests, and sometimes imaging of tissues using instrumental methods.


Treatment for gangrene may include surgical removal of affected tissues, antibiotics, wound care, and improvement of blood circulation.


Preventing gangrene involves regular skin care, monitoring of blood sugar levels in diabetic patients, avoiding injuries and wounds, as well as effective treatment of infections.


If gangrene is suspected, it is necessary to consult a surgeon or other specialist in the treatment of infections and wounds.
