Abstract

AIM: We report an unusual case of "failed suicide" in an oldest old woman who was apparently "aging successfully". METHOD: This case was analysed in the light of a careful literature review. RESULTS: This was an unusual case of failed suicide, attempted by a 94-year-old woman who had planned the suicide several days earlier. CONCLUSIONS: The unusual features of this case relate to: 1) the person's female gender and very advanced age; 2) her apparently"successful aging"condition; 3) the violent method and unusual means she used; 4) the suicide note written several days beforehand.
