    Ciao a tutti!

    I need to know how to say antecedent causes of death in Italian. It's for a legal document. I suppose it refers to a medical condition that led to the immediate cuase of death - such as high blood pressure that leads to a fatal stroke.

    I really appreciate the help!

    HERE's a nice book with perhaps many different things that will help you.

    Knowning your context from the other threads I'd go for:

    Malattia e qualità della morte

    I'd translate: " preesistenti cause di morte "

    Bye :)

    Thanks pedale! I feel as though that is more specific and better for this particular context.

    But thanks TimLA for that resource. It's going to be a wonderful tool!
