In brief: Tissue death no bugs
Aseptic necrosis is often used to describe the death of bone due to vascular insufficiency, without and infection.
High dose steroid treatment can cause aseptic necrosis of the head of the femur. Fracture of the femoral neck can also cause aseptic necrosis due to injury to blood vessels supplying the femoral head.
