Aging Bruises Based on Color: A Brief Review




This brief review paper examines a specific issue related to bruising: aging or dating bruises based on color, as seen in routine clinical assessment. It is meant to assist clinicians and allied professionals with understanding the breadth of the science, but it is not a substitute for reading the articles themselves. The paper includes an overview of the physiology of bruising, reviews the specific challenges in assigning timeframes to bruising colors, and provides considerations for clinicians when testifying about bruising in court.
