Troponin is used as the part of today's therapeutic sciences, but is also used in forensics. Studies on troponin and its use in forensic medicine have been retrieved from systematic internet search of databases “PubMed”, “Google Scholar,” “Medline,” and “Science Direct” with the last search performed in December 2019. A total of 38 publications have been reviewed that met the study criteria and have been cited in this article. Discussions on troponin often relate to its valuable attributes and particularly to its handiness as a diagnostic marker for different coronary heart disease. More specifically, it is a sensitive and specific indicators of damage to the heart muscle (myocardium).” Troponin was established in toxicological examinations as a biomarker of cardiovascular injury induced by drugs. Troponin degrades in a regular and predictable fashion and could be a reliable marker for determining the time and cause of death. In this review, the author outlines the potential application of troponin in forensic science.
