GARCIA GARCIA, Felipa E.; PEREZ MARTINEZ, Tania; PEREA CORRAL, Jesús  y  NUNEZ WONG-SHUE, José. Muerte extrahospitalaria en menores de 1 año, 1991-1993. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2001, vol.73, n.4, pp.199-205. ISSN 0034-7531.

A restrospective study of 43 children under 1, who died outside of a hospital center from January, 1991, to December, 1993, in Havana City, was conducted. The results were compared with those of a previous paper that analyed the same situation between 1989 and 1990.Violent death predominated over the different types of natural death and within them bronchopneumonuia was the main cause. Child abuse was present in 44.2 % of the cases; the intentional maltreatment and that caused by negligence behaved in a similar way, 47 and 52 %, respectively. No sudden death was identified, though there were aspects connected with it, such as sex, death time, age on dying, and death setting.

Palabras clave : CHILD ABUSE [diagnosis]; CHILD ABUSE [mortality]; SUDDEN INFANT DEATH [epidemiology]; SUDDEN INFANT DEATH [diagnosis].
