The field of neuropathology is often considered to be one of the most complex areas of pathology. General pathologists as well as forensic pathologists, neuropathologists and paediatric pathologists are frequently presented with complex forensic neuropathology issues, and significant advances in the understanding of head injury, as well as other brain pathology, have highlighted the importance of forensic neuropathology within the medico–legal setting. It is in this climate that Forensic Neuropathology comes into its own.

The internationally recognised editor and main author, Helen L. Whitwell, is Professor of Forensic Pathology at Sheffield University, Sheffield, UK, and works jointly as a forensic pathologist and as a neuropathologist. Her co-authors are selected from neuropathological, clinical and forensic practice in the UK and Europe. Forensic Neuropathology is written by experts for specialists and trainees alike and succeeds in addressing the concerns of the forensic pathologist and those of the neuropathologist by tackling the overlapping problems that arise during the postmortem examination and subsequent legal proceedings.

The book takes a practical approach and the text is complemented by a wide range of colour illustrations, demonstrating examples and techniques. Subjects covered include anatomy, traumatic brain injury, neurotoxicology and the legal issues that those working in this field need to consider, enabling the reader to make clear, confident decisions.
