Abstract A case is described in which, due to long-term repeated exposure to the same body of diatom-containing water, comparable diatom findings in the tissues and environmental samples were not acceptable as proof of drowning. A commonly overlooked pitfall limiting the value of acid-digestion in marine cases is emphasized.
