4. Diatom Penetration in the L u n g Conflicting reports exist on the diagnostic value of diatoms in the lung. It is generally assumed that diatoms may enter the lungs by in vivo inhalation or during PM submersion. Tomonaga (179) found several diatoms in lungs of a cadaver kept for 30 minutes at a 23 m depth, and Nanikawa and Kotoku (180) reported up to 145 diatoms/g of lung in a nondrowned corpse submerged for 2 to 3 months at a depth of 120 m. Accordingly, Reh (82) considered diatoms in the lungs an unspecific finding, and Neidhart and Greendyke (181) stated that "...

5) studied the relationship between water pressure and penetration of diatoms into bone marrow from bleached bones of rabbits kept in a kieshelgur suspension (35,000-40,000 diatoms per milliliter) at 0 to 4 atm for 30 minutes. He observed an increase in the number of bones yielding positive results and of the number of diatoms per bone with increasing pressure. 5 m, there were three positive bones with up to four diatoms per bone (humerus), whereas at 40 m, all 11 bones were positive, with up to 11 diatoms per bone (right ulna).

The observation of reticular fiber changes in the nondrowned similar to that observed in drowning victims (91), the wide variation in lung changes caused by factors such as the depth at which the body is submerged and the rapidity of the drowning process (92) as well as their fading during the PM interval limit the practical utility of Reh's classification. The diagnostic weight given to these changes varies significantly, even in standard textbooks. Saukko and Knight (42), for instance, state that "much has been written about both light and electron microscopy of the lungs in immersion deaths ...
