Abstract

The Authors propose a detailed description of the pathologic findings, macroscopic and histological, of two cases of juvenile sudden death in association with the results of genetic tests, such as diagnostic protocol for medico-legal definition of sudden cardiac death caused by arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). The analysis of the circumstances of acquisition judicial, forensic investigations and diagnostic judgments reached, allow us to highlight the importance of monitoring the territory of Milan and its province; it is based on performing the autopsy conducted in accordance with strict research protocols aimed, as well as legal interests, at the prevention of new episodes lethal, related to conditions such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy genetically determined and familial transmitted.
