Many people associate the term gangrene with a bacterial infection, the medical use of the term includes any cause that compromises the blood supply including peripheral arterial disease or other blood vessel diseases.

Gangrene is the death of the tissue in the affected part of the body.

Consequently, a person can be diagnosed with gangrene but does not have to be infected.

All cases of wet gangrene are considered to be infected, almost always by bacteria with the most common sites for both wet and dry gangrene to occur are the digits (fingers and toes) and other extremities (hands, arms, feet and legs).
