From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hemorrhagic infarcts are infarcts commonly caused by occlusion of veins, with red blood cells entering the area of the infarct, or an artery occlusion of an organ with collaterals or dual circulation. This is commonly seen in lungs, liver and the GI tract, areas referred to as having "loose tissue," or dual circulation. White infarcts can become hemorrhagic with reperfusion. Compare to Anemic infarct.
