SIDS: Hypothermia and sudden infant death syndrome.

Department of Paediatrics, Rotunda Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.
We recently reported an association between recurrent episodes of severe apnoea requiring vigorous resuscitation for which no cause could be found and episodic hypothermia. Two similar cases are now reported that give further evidence of a link between hypothermia and acute life threatening episodes of apnoea.
