With chapters written by internationally recognized authors, this book covers problematic medicolegal issues to provide an evidence base for many of the complex medicolegal questions raised by forensic work. It illustrates examples of approaches to the nervous system at autopsy to help familiarise the practicing pathologist with difficult examinations and give them confidence in their sampling of the nervous system. Well-illustrated with colour illustrations of both macroscopic and microscopic pathology with assessment of differential diagnoses, the book highlights practical aspects of relevance to forensic neuropathology, thus providing the reader with easy access to important differential diagnoses presented in a practical fashion. The book will be useful to doctors at an early stage of training, as well as to expert forensic pathologists and neuropathologists required to work within the court setting. In addition, it will be of interest to general pathologists and to all trainees within pathology.
