While there are many books in pediatric forensic pathology, the growing area of geriatric forensic pathology is lacking in references. Examples of deaths that are particularly prevalent among the elderly population include septic death from bedsores, accidental deaths in nursing homes, mortal bathtub slips, fires due to burning candles, and death where dementia may have played a part. In this text, experienced geriatric physician Gilbert Corrigan examines the postmortem peculiarities of those over 60 years of age. Nearly 100 actual cases are presented on deaths ruled as suicide, homicide, natural, and accidental.
