According to most British textbooks of Forensic Medicine, stabbing of the neck is a rare mode of suicide. In view of the apparent scarcity of such cases it was thought worth while to record 2 cases of transfixion of the neck with knives, apparently with suicidal intent, seen recently by the Department of Forensic Medicine at Leeds.
