SIBON OLANO, A.; MARTINEZ-GARCIA, P.; QUESADA PALACIOS, C.  and  VIZCAYA ROJAS, M.A.. Autoerotic asphyxia: The scene of the death. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.3, pp.167-170. ISSN 1988-611X.

In previous numbers of our magazine one has treated, with profusion of images, the asphyxiations mechanics; so much in their macroscopic aspect, as microscopic. Today we show a hanging, atypical up to scanty time ago in our way, the "autoerotic asphyxiation". The diagnosis of the nature of the death (accidental, suicidal and enclosed killer) has been very controversial, having a fundamental role in his explanation the scene of the death. A meticulous examination of the place of the facts is going to orientate us in a definitive way on the nature of the death.

Keywords : Autoerotic asphyxiation; Asphyxophilia; Hypoxyphilia.
