    Abstract

    Postmortem chemical analysis of vitreous humor from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) infants was done. The results were compared to a pediatric control group. The concentrations of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, glutamic pyruvate transaminase, creatinine phosphokinase, and lactate dehydrogenase were all significantly different from the pediatric control group. Thus it appears that SIDS infants are a different population from the pediatric control group.
