Term of the week:

Pugilistic attitude (posture)

The post-mortem, “boxer-like” body posture of flexed elbows and knees and clenched fists, caused by the shrinkage of body tissues and muscle due to dehydration caused by heating. The pugilistic attitude can be mistaken for a pre-death attempt to shield oneself from an attacker.
