Abstract
A 30-year-old woman, with history of depression, was found dead after the ingestion of an unknown quantity of Xanax (alprazolam), Tramal (tramadol) and alcohol. At the autopsy only a slight decomposition and a diffuse visceral congestion were noticed. Biological samples obtained at autopsy were analysed to detect the presence of alprazolam, tramadol and alcohol. Blood concentrations of alprazolam, alcohol and tramadol were 0.21 mg/l, 1.29 g/kg and 38.3 mg/l, respectively.
