Key Event Description
Biological state: cell death resulting from cellular swelling, as opposed to apoptosis.
Biological compartment: tissue level -- cellular swelling and death.
General role in biology: oncotic necrosis is cell death that is not planned or programmed. Oncotic necrosis typically results in inflammation.
How It Is Measured or Detected
Typically using plasma membrane permeability.
Domain of Applicability
Known to occur in most eukaryotes.
