Anemic infarct

Anemic infarct

Anemic infarcts are white or pale infarcts caused by arterial occlusions, and are usually seen in the heart, kidney and spleen. These are referred to as "white" because of the rapid arterial blood flow preventing red blood cells to accumulate. Compare to Hemorrhagic infarct.
