Sample text

Lungs The lungs of drowning victims with no putrefactive changes usually are waterlogged and overdistended (“emphysema aquosum”). Lungs occupy most of the pleural cavities with at times imprints of ribs on pleural surfaces and overlapping of the anterior margins on the mediastinal midline (Fig. 5). Lunetta et al. 1% of 1590 bodies found in water (56). Pleural adhesions can mask these changes. The lung surfaces usually are pale and mottled, with red and grey areas displaying sometimes marked alveolar overdistension.

According to Ludes and Coste (158), when diatoms are found in the lungs but not in closed organs, the possibility of a passive penetration cannot be excluded. Histological studies indicate that a different diatom distribution occurs in drowning and in PM submersion. In the former a generalized dissemination is observed with diatoms reaching the alveoli in the subpleural regions, whereas in PM submersion passive diffusion in interlobular and intralobular bronchi may occur, but they do not reach the bronchioli and alveoli (151,184).

2. Other Organs Gotohda et al. (106) observed in drowning deaths and other deaths by asphyxia a higher expression of heat shock protein-70 and c-Fos (both markers of stress- or damage-related events) in the hypoglossal nucleus, which innervates the upper respiratory tract. Quan et al. (107) investigated ubiquitin (heat shock protein) distribution in the midbrain of 16 drowning victims and of 18 other asphyxia victims and found a diffuse staining pattern in the nuclei of substantia nigra neurons, suggesting this finding could be a morphological equivalent of severe stress on the CNS.
