    Abstract

    Sir: We appreciate the opportunity to see Dr. Heggtveit's case, and would also favor the opinion that some brain swelling was likely present prior to death. Our question is, why? In the absence of specific information as to the circumstances of the fire, or opinion offered as to the cause of the apparent skull fracture (e.g., inflicted, heat, postmortem), it is a matter of speculation as to the mechanism of brain tissue extrusion into the epidural space in this case.
