We describe a method of enzymatic digestion of the dermo-epidermal junction, that allows an observation with a SEM of the finest details of the dermal surface covered by the reticular fibrils of the basement membrane. By means of this technique, we have made a panoramic review of the traumatology and have observed typical characteristics in all types of examined lesions. It seems that the method can constitute a new approach for medicolegal study, in all those cutaneous lesions that involve, even superficially, the dermis.
