Because an infant is not merely a small adult, an infant autopsy in not simply a small adult autopsy. 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 eliminate 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 charged with infant autopsies.
