Lung abscess, gross specimen. The abscess has been caused by chronic bacterial infection of the lung. The infection has caused necrosis (cell death) of pulmonary tissue and the formation of cavities containing necrotic debris. These pus-filled abscesses can be the result of other disease processes also, such as a fungal infection or cancer.
