In drowning cases, it is difficult to judge whether the deceased died from drowning or throwing into the water after killed or identificate the cause of death of the decomposed corps in forensic practices. The diatom test is still considered as the important assistant evidence in drowning cases. This paper reviews research progress on technologies in recent years of forensic diatom test, and the application value of the new developing approach in the field of forensic medicine.
