We describe the death of a young girl that resulted from the insertion of a clenched hand and forearm into her vagina during heterosexual activity. (The male homosexual practice of rectal fist insertion has been described previously.) We believe this death to be the first reported case of a “fisting” death due to vaginal fist insertion during heterosexual activity. This death is reported to alert forensic pathologist, medicolegal death investigators, and coroners aware of the role of aberrant sexual activity and its potential to cause death.
