ABSTRACT
The author reflects on small for gestational age (SGA) infants and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). He discusses that fetal growth restriction or SGA is a risk factor for (SIDS). He added that the reduction in risk for SIDS following socioeconomic adjustment is consistent with environmental and behavioral conditions. Furthermore, he stressed that genetic polymorphisms occurred in greater frequency in SIDS infants than in matched control infants.
