Sudden unexpected death from natural causes in young adults

Sudden unexpected death from natural causes in young adults

Arch Pathol 85(1): 10-17

Cases of sudden and unexpected death from natural causes in individuals between the ages of 20 and 45 years are reviewed; the causes and circumstances of the deaths of these individuals are defined. Asymptomatic coronary artery disease and untreated infectious diseases comprise a significant percentage of these cases. The potentiating direct and indirect effects of acute and chronic alcoholism on natural disease processes of all types cannot be overemphasized and constitute a real public health problem.
