Abstract: Sodium fluorescein is commonly used in clinical ophthalmology to detect the presence and degree of corneal alterations of various etiologies. Postmortem processes also alters the integrity of the corneal epithelium, and based on these etiopatholoigcal analogies we used sodium fluorescein staining to assess postmortem characteristics of corneal damages (with clinical and medico-legal implications) and also to evaluate the correlation between the intensity and extent of these damages with the postmortem interval.
Keywords: sodium fluorescein, postmortem corneal alterations, postmortem interval.
