SummaryOne hundred and sixteen cases with known intervals between the time of brain injury and the time of death were systematically examined for selected histologic alterations in an attempt to facilitate the timing of histomorphologic alterations in cortical contusions following closed brain injury. The following criteria were considered: erythrocytes, polymorphonuclear leukocytes, scavenger cells, hemosiderophages, lymphocytes, hematoidin, degenerating neurons, neuronophagy, axonal swelling… 
Age determination of brain contusions

TLDR
In 104 individuals who had sustained traumatic brain injury, the course of traumatically induced morphological changes was investigated immunohistochemically during the first 30 weeks after the trauma to investigate the vascular response to brain injury and inflammatory cell reaction in human cortical contusions.
Time course of cortical hemorrhages after closed traumatic brain injury: statistical analysis of posttraumatic histomorphological alterations.
TLDR
A software program is developed that allows the estimation of survival time of TBI based on the relative frequency of the 18 morphological features and an apparent correlation was found between the frequency of a given histomorphological phenomenon and the length of the posttraumatic interval.
Timing of Cortical Contusions in Human Brain Injury
TLDR
It could be demonstrated that a significantly increased number of glial fibrillary acidic protein-positive astrocytes adjacent to the damaged area indicates a wound age of at least 1 day.
Traumatic Brain Injury: A Forensic Approach: A Literature Review
TLDR
This mini-review aims to systematize the forensic approach in neuropathological studies, highlighting the proper elements to be noted during external, radiological, autoptical, and histological examinations with particular attention paid to immunohistochemistry and molecular biology.
Retroocular and Subdural Hemorrhage or Hemosiderin Deposits in Pediatric Autopsies
TLDR
In 53 cases of non-traumatic death, approximately 70% had blood or hemosiderin within the orbital fat, ocular muscles, and parasagittal cranial and/or cervical spinal subdural compartment, suggesting bleeding is likely a consequence of the birth process.
Vitality, Injury Age, Determination of Skin Wound Age, and Fracture Age
TLDR
Tabular statements are now available not only for histopathological wound age determination but also for the determination of fracture age, in the case of inflammatory processes, such as fibrinous pericarditis, pleuritis, or peritonitis.
Vitality and time course of wounds.

TLDR
The neuropathological changes in the white matter in 40 consecutive head injuries is described, finding that lesser degrees of white matter damage may occur in all patients with head injury, but the frequency is difficult to estimate.
A STUDY OF BRAIN REPAIR IN THE RAT BY THE USE OF TRYPAN BLUE: WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE VITAL STAINING OF THE MACROPHAGES
TLDR
It is generally recognized now that these mononuclear phagocytic cells, during a certain period of their existence at least, take up such dyes from the surrounding fluids with avidity, and store them.

TLDR
Jimenez di Asua was the first to bring forward evidence that microglial cells are part of the reticulo-endothelial system, though Raminez Corria had previously suggested such a relationship.
HISTOCHEMICAL OBSERVATIONS ON OXIDATIVE ENZYME ACTIVITY OF GLIAL CELLS IN A LOCAL BRAIN INJURY
TLDR
The correlation of histochemical findings with other observations on glia provides further support for the view that the astrocytes are primarily implicated in the process of cerebral edema and emphasizes the dynamic character of this involvement.
Demonstration of massive traumatic brain swelling within 20 minutes after injury. Case report.
The authors documented by computerized axial tomography a case of massive brain swelling occurring within 20 minutes of a closed head injury. It is suggested that the cause of the brain swelling is
Cerebrospinal Fluid Cytology
TLDR
The best use can be made of a specimen of CSF if the whole sample is delivered to the microbiology laboratory, rather than being divided up by the clinician and sent, in what might not be appropriate aliquots, to several laboratories.
