In this paper, a case is being reported about a man who was beaten to death, presenting with extensive internal injury with minimal external injuries. It is an established fact that some areas of the body bruise less in spite of considerable blunt trauma. However, practically, this is not always the case. If there is no significant external trauma, the internal injury if sustained is not usually much. But in this case, there was fatal internal injury without any externally visible injury. The case is therefore being reported to highlight this rare finding.



No external trauma, internal injury.
