    Abstract

    Two hundred and twenty-eight consecutive medicolegal autopsies were studied as to the cause of death established by a physician, the mode of death as suggested in the police report, and findings of medical interest often discovered following autopsy. Corrections had to be made even in some cases which seemed to be obvious. With a decrease of the number of autopsies, the records of various registration bureaus would be affected. Autopsies are still necessary for control and correction of clinical causes of death.
