Sudden infant death of monozygotic  twin on the same day: a case report


   Sudden Infant Death Syndrome(SIDS) represents a major leading cause of death among all racial and ethnic groups of infants between one month to one year of age. The exact cause of such death is unfortunately unknown, but there are multiple possibilities for  that: cardiovascular abnormalities, suffocation and infectious causes. The occurrence of sudden unexpected death in twins is extremely rare event. For the first time in Palestine, we report an 8-week-old female twins who found dead while sleeping on their backs, their death occurred concurrently within 24 hours. Extensive investigations were done, all approved that their death was completely a natural one .
