28% patients (GI bleed-18% patients, petechial
rashes-6%, haematuria-2% and epistaxis-2%).

rash on the patient's leg
It is generally characterized by petechial
and pigmentary macules involving the lower extremities.
The observed petechial
hemorrhage on the serous membranes along with serosanguineous fluids in the thoracic and abdominal cavities were indicative of septicemic changes.
To the Editor: The symptoms of cerebral fat embolism (CFE) are often a triad of acute respiratory failure, unconsciousness, and petechial
rash after a symptom-free interval of 12–24 h following trauma.
So close was Arlene to dying with the petechial
haemorrhaging in that attack that she was the only live victim we ever had examined by a pathologist.
The findings were as follows: oesophagus--diffuse petechial
Conjunctival findings like hyperemia, petechial
hemorrhages and papillary or follicular reaction is seen.
On postmortem examination, cloudy air sacs, petechial
hemorrhages on serosal membranes and focal hepatic necrosis were observed.
The physical examination revealed a disseminated petechial
rash over her body; pulmonary auscultation showed diffuse rhonchi and diminished respiratory sounds at the left lung base.
In addition, acute infarct, petechial
hemorrhage, myelinolysis, and calcium deposition have also been postulated [6, 7].
The amount of hemorrhage varies widely from small petechial
lesions to large intracerebral hematoma.
hemorrhages over face, neck, chest, and limbs were found in 12 (11.
5 cm wide ligature mark (Figure-2b) beginning from the front side of the neck, and superficially running upwards on both sides of the neck but ending at the ear level, diffuse petechial
haemorrhages on the face, an injection mark with ecchymosis on the left elbow internal plica and petechial
haemorrhages on the surface of the thymus.
hemorrhages were found all over the body.
