Few days after the baby was born a lactating mother noticed sudden cessation in lactation. On history it was revealed that she had problems during her pregnancy with her blood pressure. What type of necrosis would be associated with this problem?
a) liquifactive
b) coagulative
c) calcific
d) caseous
e) fibrinoid
f) enzymatic fat necrosis




  #2

coagulative. Although the pituitary is a part of brain and liquifactive is typical for necrosis brain, since anterior pituitary is from Rathke's pouch, it will be coagulative.


  #3

correct
