Cause of Death

Postby Cleekamin » Tue Jan 19, 2010 5:52 pm

Very occasionally the cause of death on a death certificate can mystify and it's not always the handwriting which causes the problem.

I came across one today which sounds like so much gobbledegook and wonder if anyone here can make more sense of it than I can. The first half is not so mysterious and the spelling of the last word is clearly a problem but any help would be much appreciated.

are you sure the first word was sarconia? and not sarcoma? the "n" and the "i" next to each other may appear as an "m" in handwriting.

Nice one - You are absolutely correct and that likely deals with the first half but as for the rest?

Even Mr. Google doesn't know the last word 8-) And doesn't even suggest anything...

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

where exactly did you came across this?
