About the Authors
  • For the first time this volume gives a single, comprehensive summary and review of the various causes of sudden infant and childhood death. The authors provide a system-by-system analysis of the many disparate and often under-recognised disorders prevalent in this age group. Concentrating especially on conditions unique to childhood, the text provides detailed checklists and differential diagnosis along with discussions on possible mechanisms of death. Chapters are thoroughly crossreferenced and utilise extensive illustration to produce both an easily accessible general reference text and autopsy manual. The appendix also provides investigation protocols for specific cases including death due to SIDS, infectious disorders, metabolic disorders and trauma. This unique interdisciplinary text, embellished with interesting aspects of historical detail, will be of interest to all physicians engaged in paediatric practice, whether on the clinical or pathological side.

    • First comprehensive text on causes of sudden death in childhood
    • Extensive illustration and crossreferencing
    • Ideal general reference text and specific autopsy manual
