One hundred twenty-three babies died at home at the age of 1–12 months have been examined from 2004 till 2008. 39 babies died from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The comparison group has been composed of 58 babies of the same age died at home from various diseases. Investigations have been performed in DGCB N1, Samara. About 95 % of babies died from SIDS at home during the first six months of their life, with top mortality between 1 till 3 months. There was sexual difference — 67 % of boys. The majority of home death cases have happened in summer — 49 babies (30%). Morphological investigations have been made including different heart weighting, histological and histometric examination of cardiomyocites. It has been revealed that in the group of babies died from SIDS the most constant symptoms have included: right heart hypertrophy, great heart weight variability, ventricular index.
