Cutting-edge accounts of special topics from various fields of forensic pathology and death scene investigation. The authors explore new avenues for analyzing the pathology of death from starvation (child neglect), head injuries inflicted by glass bottles, the clinical and pathological features of primary cerebral neoplasms, obesity as it is relevant to the forensic pathologist, and infant and early childhood asphyxial death. Other areas of interest covered include suicide, viral myocarditis in sudden death cases, curious death scene phenomena (hiding, covering and undressing), forensic entomology, the interpretation of toxicological findings, anabolic-androgenic-steroid abuse, and autopsy findings of subendocardial hemorrhages.

Editorial Reviews

From Reviews of the First Volume..."...the readers of this book will establish up-to-date and good grasp of forensic pathology...the book can be recommended to forensic pathologists from beginners to experts. The book will give good basis for further forensic practices and researches." -Legal Medicine"It is hoped that the following volume of this series will maintain the high standard set up by this first volume." -International Journal of Legal Medicine"I would recommend the first book in this series to the practicing forensic pathologist who wishes to fill in some gaps of the standard forensic pathology texts or as a starting point to begin to master the art of traumatic forensic neuroimmunohistochemistry." -Arch Pathol Lab Med "...continues the excellent work of the first volume...essential reading by all forensic practitioners, both those established and those in training alike." - Forensic Science, Medicine, and PathologyFrom the reviews:"There are 13 chapters in Volume 2. The contributors, who are predominantly from Germany, have published extensively in their areas of expertise. . This book is highly recommended for practicing forensic pathologists. It is important not only as a source for current information, but also as a resource for in-depth knowledge on subjects that may not be covered as thoroughly in standard textbooks." (Dr. A. T. Balachandra, Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, June, 2005)
