In infants, pulmonary haemosiderin has been put forward as a marker of previous asphyxic abuse and possible grounds for suspicion of homicide. Review of the available literature does not provide a strong enough evidence base to support this claim. Further research is needed before instigation of criminal proceedings can be justified on this pathological finding.
