Sudden Infant Death Syndrome | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

The diagnosis of SIDS is by an autopsy that rules out other causes for an infant's death. To make the diagnosis of SIDS, the autopsy must be thorough and done by an expert in infant death. The diagnosis of SIDS is made if no other causes of death can be found and the autopsy findings suggest SIDS.
