[Comment] Skeletal muscle channelopathy: a new risk for sudden infant death syndrome

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) remains a leading cause of infant mortality, despite a steadily decreasing incidence since the 1990s.1 The reasons for this decline are debated, but it could be due to methodological reasons (eg, changes in reporting or advances in diagnosis of specific diseases) or a reduction of risks, such as an increase in supine sleeping position for infants, as advocated by the Back to Sleep campaign.2 A better understanding of the causes of SIDS is needed to identify infants at high risk and to develop interventions and guidelines that will prevent SIDS for all infants.
