Abstract

Atypical entrance gunshot wounds may be produced by deflected or ricocheting bullets. One special type of atypical entrance wound involves abrasion of the skin at a site that is remote from the point of dermal penetration. These remote abrasions, termed 'tumbling abrasions,' are produced by bullets that tumble after impact with an intermediate target. Three cases of tumbling abrasions are presented.
