COBO ABREU, Antonio Rafael; GONZALEZ PEREZ, Jorge  and  COBO MONTANES, Yanin. Reseña histórica: identificación de los restos mortales de José Martí, mediante el aparato dental. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 1995, vol.11-12, n.2-1, pp.46-49. ISSN 2215-5287.

This paper is a historical review of medical reports about the remains of the Cuban National Hero José Julián Martí which were based on dentition. The Spanish army had incorrect information as did those in charge of the second exhumation in 1907. The following debate led the forensic expert to accuse newspaper reporters of misunderstanding his words, but a final statement required another forensic exam to which Marti’s dentist was called. This showed that the leader of Cuaban independence had damaged teeth instead of the "perfect dentition"originally mentioned.

Keywords : History; Jose Martí; dentition; identificatio.
