A definitive explanation of “crib” or “cot” death remains unknown. An unusual incidental autopsy finding of agenesis of the corpus callosum in a case presenting as “near miss” sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is discussed. Hitherto, only a single case associated with SIDS has been reported in the literature. The condition may be easily missed outside the interest in neuropathology.
