dc.description.abstract In the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) a sleeping infant is discovered lifeless. SIDS is a recognized medical disorder in the International Classification of Deaths. However, the Annual Health Bulletin of Sri Lanka has not documented any death due to SIDS. A post-mortem examination was performed according to the SIDS Autopsy Protocol of the National SIDS Council of Australia, on an infant who had died unexpectedly. This case illustrates the importance of having a protocol of our own to diagnose SIDS. en_US
