ESTUPINAN RODRIGUEZ, N.; ARENCIBIA FLEITAS, Y.; VECINO MADRUGA, L.  y  RODRIGUEZ HERNANDEZ, E.. Fortuitous atypical death. A case report. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.1-2, pp.35-38.  Epub 21-Sep-2020. ISSN 1988-611X.

In Legal Medicine, there are frequently cases having an accidental medico-legal etiology in its more varied situations. An accident is any spontaneous traumatic or morbid fact or phenomenon that happens in a healthy individual or in the course of an illness. The wideness of this definition terms obliges us to take into the account that the different kinds of accidents are conditioned by multiple phenomena of unforeseeable and uncontrollable character.

In the current work, we expose an uncommon, atypical home accident, unfortunately ending in the victim’s death; it deals with an elder woman aged 72 years who, according with the data provided by the police instruction was found lying in the kitchen of her house with an incised penetrating wound in the thoracic cavity. She had antecedents of epilepsy since childhood, and for that was treated; it was obtained information that she referred feeling bad before staying alone at home.
