Image Number 16 - Lung, infarct, histologic view

This is a histological view of an infarct of the lung. Hemorrhagic (red) infarcts are characteristic of organs with dual blood supplies where the secondary blood supply is unable to keep up with the needs of the tissue, but does supply blood to the area. Red infarcts are also seen with venous occlusions and in organs with loosely arranged tissues.
