FONSECA, Gabriel M.. Atypical entrance and exit wounds due to high velocity bullet with intraoral position: Suggested procedures in Forensic Oral Pathology. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2009, n.57, pp.215-221. ISSN 1988-611X.

We present an intraoral shooting fatality case by Fusil Automatique Leger - FAL, high velocity infantry rifle 7.62 x 51 mm NATO, 810 m/s, with the atypical morphology of the entrance and exit wounds. Entrance showed great contused wound on mouth and periorifitial in both soft and hard tissues (fractures of teeth and bones) and exit wound showed a small perforation in cervix. The effective kinetic energy was the most significant factor determining those exiguously reported patterns. Because of the atypical conditions, we present the performing of the tongue sample extraction to demonstrate the presence of powder particles and confirm the oral wound as the entry wound. We suggest the term Forensic Oral Pathology to define the speciality of dentistry studying the "identification, documentation, recovering and saving of all sings in oral soft and hard tissues to making available the legal evidence", more integral and comprehensive than the recognized but injusticely delimitated procedure of dental identification.
