Also talked about under liquefactive necrosis on pg. 209 FA 2020
UW: 302 & 9989 are both great for representing/explaining this.
pancreatitis is fat saponification not liquefactive according to FA.
@tekkenman101 Inflammation of the pancreas itself is liquefactive due to pancreatic enzymes digesting everything; inflammation of the fat surrounding the pancreas leads to fat necrosis. (Dr. Sattar distinguishes this when he talks about the different types of necrosis)

Read pathoma...... chapter 1 p 5 on "cell death" Liquefactive necrosis occurs in brain infarct ( proteolytic enzymes from microglial cells liquify the brain) & Abscess (proteolytic enzymes from neutrophils liquify tissue [in this case pulmonary parenchyma]) & pancreatitis (same thing)
