Specific procedures, factors, and considerations must be accounted for as part of the process. Data obtained from an infant autopsy, in a medicolegal context, should all but elim...inate cases of apparent SIDS or unexplained infant deaths . True cases of unexplained infant deaths should be rare in any system of death investigation. The book provides structure and clarity to the infant forensic autopsy process through an experiential and evidential basis. It is a current, comprehensive user's manual for both the training and practicing forensic pathologist chargedged with infant autopsies.
