      SYSTEMIC COMPLICATIONS OF CHRONIC CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL MEDICO-LEGALLY CONFIRMED BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHIC DOSAGE WITH MASS SPECTROMETRY (GC-MS) OF ETHYLGLUCURONIL IN URINE SAMPLES COLLECTED FROM DEAD BODIES (Abstract). Purpose. The main purpose of this paper is to determine the dose of ethyl glucuronide in urine samples collected from corpses and the corroboration with the investigation data, with the anatomo-pathological diagnosis and the one following necropsy can lead to establishing the diagnosis of chronic intoxication with ethanol and the elucidation of some atypical situations. Conclusions. Based on the case studies analysed in the laboratory of pathological anatomy and forensic toxicology, in corpses suspected of chronic alcohol consumption, significant systemic changes of vital organs were identified correlated with a significantly increased level of ethyl-glucuronide found in urine samples.
