Introduction

The forensic physician may encounter bites in the following four circumstances:

1. During the examination of assault victims (both children and adults) where presentation is more likely to be late.

2. Among police officers bitten during the arrest of a detainee.

3. In detainees during the arrest if dogs have been used.

4. Where detainees have been involved in a fight either around the time of arrest or earlier.

A detailed forensic examination of bites is given in Chapter 4. With any bite that has penetrated the skin, the goals of therapy are to minimize soft tissue deformity and to prevent or treat infection.
