Tut is believed to have died from complications following an accident which severely injured one of his legs, fracturing it and breaking through the skin. MRI and CT analysis of his mummy shows the injury, which did not heal, indicating it was perimortem. DNA analysis also shows that he repeatedly suffered from the most severe type of malaria. There was coriander in his tomb, a spice used to treat fever during his time. Tut had a malformed bone in one of his feet, possibly genetic, that probably caused him to limp. He was buried with many canes that were used, as evidenced by wear. It is supposed that Tut was injured during a hunting expedition, possibly a chariot accident.

It is possible he had internal injuries that contributed, however, the mummification process had made finding evidence difficult as his organs were removed.
