The estimation of the age of skin bruises is of importance in forensic medicine, especially in child abuse cases. Time-dependent changes in bruise colour and/or associated histological features have been used with a limited degree of success. An increased rate of apoptosis in the injured tissue has been considered as a novel time-dependent marker of cell… (More)
Whilst examining the variation with age of the nerve fibre content of the cardiac conduction system (CCS), using an immunocytochemical approach, it became evident that in two sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) cases there was a selective lack of S100 positive nerve fibres in the atrioventricular (AV) node and His bundle. In the present study therefore, the… (More)
Death from hypoxic cerebral damage 1 week after manual strangulation is described, with a discussion of the competing pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for the fatal outcome in this case, and in manual strangulation in general.

In this report data from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Japan and Hong Kong are analysed. Regression coefficient and linearity of regression tests were… (More)
