Abstract We report the death of a young female non-diabetic after self-administration of insulin which led to the trial and conviction of her partner, who was himself an insulin-dependent diabetic. This brings out particular lessons for the pathologist in view of the rarity of such deaths, emphasizes the importance of careful laboratory analysis and illustrates a number of interesting legal points.
