Abstract

Introduction: One specific technique by which subdural haematoma can be timed has been one of the most challenging problems faced by pathologists. Currently, the most documented technique used for timing trauma is the Perl's stain for haemosiderin indicative of two days time lag between trauma and death. Trauma leads to the activation of a group of cells known as macrophages and offers a possible new means of timing trauma. The aim of this project was to reach a sensible conclusion about timing subdural haematoma by using a variety of markers against macrophages.
