Abstract

The medial thickness of small pulmonary arteries in 40 victims of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and 12 controls has been determined. For the purposes of analysis infants were allocated according to age into one of 3 groups: 30-90, 91-180 and 181-365 days. The arterial media in the 30-90 day control group was marginally thicker than that in the SIDS victims; no other SIDS related effects were noticed.
