About the Authors
  • Sudden unexpected infant death, including sudden infant death syndrome, is the leading cause of death in infants one month to one year of age, in the developed world. A thorough investigation is crucial for accurate diagnosis. As part of the Diagnostic Pediatric Pathology Series, this book provides a detailed guide to various diagnoses and strong frameworks across continents, for strong support in conducting a multi-professional approach to the physiopathological mechanisms behind SIDS. Offering sensitive consideration for parents in mourning, this book rigorously explores current standards of police investigation and post-mortem, incorporating all aspects of the investigation, including the home visit, medical history and autopsy findings. Written by multidisciplinary experts, this vital guide uses clear reference tables and diagrams to present cutting-edge knowledge for use by paediatric and general pathologists, paediatricians, medico-legal practitioners, and all involved in the investigation of sudden infant death.

    • Explores all aspects of SIDS to give readers a holistic approach to the subject, including the parents' perspectives and the legal framework of the investigation
    • Offers easy-to-use reference information tables, diagrams and illustrations that carefully guide the reader to the essential steps required to excel in the diagnosis of common and rarer paediatric conditions
    • Provides a detailed analysis of the many different physiopathological mechanisms involved in sudden infant deaths, to give readers a current understanding in biological factors leading to SIDS
