ABSTRACT

 

One of the most important duties of a medical examiner is to define its cause when an injury occurred. An injury may occur due to violence e.g. child abuse, accidents e.g. home accidents, attempts to suicide e.g. jumping, or it may follow an illness. Even it may occur iatrogenically. The process of medico-legal diagnosis is not easy every time, especially if the victim is a child. The anamnesis and the observation of the behaviors of children and parents are very important but not always sufficient for diagnosis.

 

The case submitted in this report is a nine years old male child. He was hospitalized in the State Hospital after fainted in the bathroom of his house. During the entrance of Manisa State Hospital, he was unconscious, his arterial blood pressure was 180/110 mmHg, his arterial pulsation rate was 180/minute, his respiration was shallow and there was a circular abrasion with 2 cm diameter on the right frontal region of his body. He was transported to Celal Bayar University Hospital after endotracheal intubation. Syncope, diffuse subcutaneous emphysema on his neck, thorax and abdomen and bilateral pneumothorax was diagnosed at University Hospital. Eustachian valve was detected at echocardiography. He was sent to Forensic Medicine Department of University Hospital for the preparation of his medico-legal report after he was discharged.     

 

In this report, we submitted the medico-legal evaluation of a case with eustachian valve, diffuse subcutaneous emphysema and bilateral pneumothorax and difficulties during medico-legal diagnosis as the major cause of the clinical aspects among trauma, illness, medical malpractice or complication.

 

Key words: forensic medicine, medical malpractice, eustachian valve, pneumothorax and subcutaneous emphysema.
