Autoerotic fatalities refer to a death resulting from the participation in a sex-related activity designed to heighten sexual

arousal. The overwhelming majority of these deaths are due to asphyxia, most often by hanging or ligature compression

of the neck. Here we report a case of »atypical« autoerotic fatality in which death was not induced by ligature compression.

Unusual death of a 24-year-old man, involving propane inhalation and plastic bag suffocation, is described.

The special characteristics of propane gas as an asphyxiant agent are discussed, as well as its effect on the human body.
