Abstract

A unique case of delayed fatal hemothorax in a 12-year-old girl resulting from atypical dissection of a traumatic carotid aneurysm is reported, due to occult neck trauma received in a sledding accident which occurred one week prior to death. Aspects of traumatic carotid dissection and forensic implications of delayed presentation of such findings in the setting of occult trauma are discussed.
