Abstract

For each case of sudden infant and perinatal death, a full review of clinical and epidemiologic data and a complete necropsy study were performed according to the necropsy protocol devised by the Institute of Pathology, University of Milan, Milan, Italy (available at: http://users.unimi.it/~pathol/ sids_e.html). Histopathologic examination of unexpected late fetal and neonatal death and SIDS cases allowed us to identify frequent alterations, mainly congenital, of the autonomic nervous system, modulating respiratory, cardiovascular, arousal, and upper digestive activities. The data and arguments presented herein provide a brief survey tending to open, rather than conclude, a far-reaching subject and to motivate medicolegal specialists and pathologists to perform more in-depth study.
