Abstract

Clivus fractures are usually associated with head blunt trauma due to traffic accident and falls. A 23–year-oldman died immediately after a smash-up while he was stopping on his motorcycle. Post-mortem Computed tomography (PMCT), performed before autopsy, revealed a complex basilar skull base fractures associated withbrainstem and cranio-vertebral junction injuries, improving the diagnostic performance of conventional autopsy.Imaging data were re-assessable and PMCT offers the possibility to perform multiplanar and volume renderedreconstructions, increasing forensic medicine knowledge related to traumatic injuries.
