    Abstract

    Artifacts which mimic the tattooing and soot deposition of close range gunshot wounds have been described as “pseudo-soot” and “pseudo-tattooing.” The origin of such findings includes glass, intermediate targets, insect bites, medical manipulation, graphite, and sutures. The authors present a case of pseudo-soot and pseudo-tattooing as a result of asphalt pavement, and describe the associated entity of pseudo-scorching.
