    Abstract

    while morphological changes may be correlated with physiological abnormalities, such associations are usually apparent only when the anatomic pathology is severe. Marked biochemical abnormalities may exist with little or no apparent tissue change. Conversely striking anatomic lesions may have no significant laboratory findings. It is for this reason that any pathologist is interested in postmortem chemical studies hoping he may be able to determine physiological abnormalities that existed while the patient was alive. This is particularly true of the forensic pathologist who usually has no antemortem hospital studies to assist him.
