It is important to understand that forensic histopathology is quite different compared to the rest of histology. Diagnostic histopathology is largely an apprenticeship, learned through experience and by visual demonstration and example. It is of great importance in criminal cases, as the presentation of microscopic evidence improves the legal decision of Courts and promotes justice. This book focuses on the borderland between forensic pathology and forensic histology. Forensic pathologists also benefit from a realistic perspective with more than 300 full-colour micrographs. The main advantage of this book is the modern concept of histopathology, with inclusion of immunohistochemical techniques of great utility to forensic pathologists, forensic pathology fellows, pathologists who consult in forensic cases, pathology residents, autopsy pathologists, coroners and forensic investigators.
