MedlinePlus:34 Gangrene is the death of tissues in your body. it happens when a part of your body loses its blood supply. gangrene can happen on the surface of the body, such as on the skin, or inside the body, in muscles or organs. causes include serious injuries problems with blood circulation, such as atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease diabetes skin symptoms may include a blue or black color, pain, numbness, and sores that produce a foul-smelling discharge. if the gangrene is internal, you may run a fever and feel unwell, and the area may be swollen and painful. gangrene is a serious condition. it needs immediate attention. treatment includes surgery, antibiotics, and oxygen therapy. in severe cases an amputation may be necessary.

MalaCards: Gas Gangrene, also known as gangrene, is related to myocarditis and pancreatitis, and has symptoms including sepsis, gas production and myonecrosis. An important gene associated with Gas Gangrene is HSPG2 (heparan sulfate proteoglycan 2), and among its related pathways are Muscular Dystrophies and Dystrophin-Glycoprotein Complex and Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis. The drugs nitrofurazone and oxygen and the compounds phosphatidyl ethanol and scalaradial have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include muscle tissue, skin and liver, and related mouse phenotypes are muscle and homeostasis/metabolism.

Disease Ontology:8 A commensal bacterial infectious disease that results in infection, located in muscle tissue, has material basis in clostridium perfringens, which produce gas that becomes trapped in the infected tissue. gas gangrene usually develops after injuries or surgery. the infection has symptom large blisters, has symptom pain in the infected area, has symptom myonecrosis, has symptom gas production, and has symptom sepsis.
