Abstract

Histopathology examination has been a boon to forensic experts all around the world since its implication in autopsy cases.Whenever a case of sudden death is encountered, forensic experts clandestinely focus on cardiovascular respiratory, gastrointestinal or cranio-cerebral causes. After ruling out poisoning or trauma, they are left with the only option available, histopathology examination. Besides preserving thoracic and abdominal organs, brain tissues are very less frequently subiected for the analysis. Based on provisional diagnosis documented on hospital treatment record files, one hemisphere of grossly unremarkable cerebrum was confirmatively diagnosed by histopathology examination to be a case of CerebraT loxoplasmosis.
