In the sewers and water ways of Act II there are piles of diseased bodies that have health, but don't seem to be doing anything except for lying there waiting to be destroyed. Can they hurt me in any way, or are they just a barrel with a health bar?

They can spew a poison cloud when 'killed', and sometimes I think they spawn Accursed or other poisonous guys as well (similar to Grotesque mobs)

Personal experience. They don't do much in normal, but they tend to spew them out pretty quickly in higher difficulties. There's also an event tied to these piles as well which will spawn a unique Accursed at the end. Also, the ones just before breaking the jeweller out of the barrel do spawn them pretty well even in normal. I've only seen them spawn Accursed though, not grotesque-esque mobs. – Matthew Scharley Jun 16 '12 at 2:45
@MatthewScharley I meant that they spawn Accursed, like how Grotesque mobs spawn flies/imps etc. (i.e. they're 'monster containers' of a sort) – Alok Jun 17 '12 at 5:26
