Forensic medicine deals both the living (eg, sexual assaults) as well as dead (eg, rape followed by murder) and drug induced death cases. In drug induced death or sexual assault cases some of the victims are sufferers of AIDS. HIV transmission occurs more in free and unlimited sex. Some points are to be remembered as the safety devices while a case of suspected HIV person is examined or autopsy is conducted. These points are elaborated in this article. Some legal implications are looked into while handling such cases with evidence of AIDS. These are also discussed.
