The autopsy findings in 28 cases of fatal hypothermia have been described. Hypothermia, in temperate climates, is one of the complications of longevity. The hypothermic state may be precipitated by a wide range of natural diseases, especially chronic cardiac disease. The classical case of hypothermia may be recognized at post-mortem by the myxoedematous appearance of the patient and the presence of gastric and pancreatic lesions.
