The synonym of forensic medicine is forensic pathology1,2. Also called legal medicine or medicaljurisprudence3. Forensic medicine is a field that involves collection and analysis of medical evidence samples to produce objective information for use in the legal system2,3. It can therefore be aptly summed as the science that deals with the application ofmedical knowledge to legal questions. It is also extremely useful in cases where a patient dieswithout having made a definitive diagnosis2. The primary tool of forensic medicine has always been the autopsy2. Frequently used for identification of the dead, autopsies may also be conducted to determine the cause of death2. In cases of deathcaused by a weapon, for example, the forensic pathologist - by examining the wound - can often provide detailed information about the type ofweapon used as well as important contextual information.
