A case of a boy bitten by a chimpanzee is reported.
Forensic investigations were carried out on his T-shirt which had been torn open at the right armpit.
By presumptive tests using chemical reagents and definitive tests using antisera against human hemoglobin A (HbAo), human serum and human saliva amylase, it was demonstrated that stains scattered around the torn portion of the shirt consisted of saliva or both blood and saliva.
Though the blood was immunologically assumed to be human, the saliva could not be identified as human or chimpanzee.
The mixed stains and the saliva stains were grouped A and secretor.
