NIH-Funded SIDS Research News
A recent publication by a group of NIH-funded researchers found that approximately 40% of infants who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) had a similar brain abnormality. Given the controversy surrounding many SIDS cases, this is an important new finding. Of course, this does not explain the large number of deaths classified as SIDS-related that were later attributed to parental causes, but it does provide evidence to support classifying SIDS as a true medical problem.
