|Legal Medical Skin Wounds||Other: autopsy|
Determining the vitality of skin wounds, that is to say their antemortem character, is an important issue in forensic pathology. The only criterion vitality currently recognized (but whose diagnostic performance remains limited) is the microscopic demonstration of an inflammatory infiltrate of neutrophils. The search for more reliable diagnostic biomarkers is required. By their early expression of the injury site, inflammatory cytokines are potential candidates and their quantification in injured skin could optimize the diagnosis of vitality injury.
The objective is to identify the cytokine or combination of cytokines, with the best diagnostic performance to characterize the vital nature of a skin wound in the body.

At autopsy achieving adequate sampling of lesions and healthy skin
- measures cytokines [ Time Frame: 1 day ]multiplex analysis electrochemoluminescence: Six cytokines candidates selected from a literature review (IFN-γ, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 p70, TNF-α) will be assayed in conjunction with the MSD technology (V-PLEX proinflammatory Panel 1 human Kit) after tissue extraction and determination of total protein concentration in each sample.
