Norwegian cause of death term - stumped

Fellow Norwegian Genealogists -

I'm transcribing a Norwegian death record from 1887 and am stumped on translating the cause of death. It looks like "Lukkerogge" or maybe "Lukkerøgge". I've searched the usual articles on parish death records and common causes of death, and done various other searches for archaic medical terms, but this term is evading me.

I've attached a JPEG of the term. Or if anyone cares to look at the source, it's entry #7 (widowed farmer Kittel Aanensen) at ""

Would be super grateful for any assistance!
