    Abstract

    The syndrome of sudden and unexpected infant death ("crib death") has long been the subject of investigation. Most reports indicate that a cause of death can be demonstrated at autopsy in one-half to two-thirds of the cases. New diagnostic approaches have been attempted for the remainder; but microbiologic, hematologic, toxicologic, and other studies have been helpful in only a few instances.
