Gangrene is caused by an infection, injury or other cause that makes a body part lose its blood supply. You have a higher risk for gangrene if you are diabetic, have a serious injury, a blood vessel disease or suppressed immune system.
The loss of blood supply causes excessive necrosis, or cell death in the affected tissue. This causes the flesh to turn a blackish-greenish color accompanied by a fowl odor. This is how the condition gets its name.
