After attending this presentation, attendees will become familiar with the possibility that a completely asymptomatic atypical pneumonia may induce sudden death, even in a previously healthy adolescent, with absence of histological signs of diffuse alveolar damage. This presentation will impact the forensic science community by making attendees aware of the insidious development of atypical pneumonia in immunocompetent subjects, focusing the possible responsible mechanisms of sudden death in such cases, in the absence of ARDS and histological signs of diffuse alveolar damage.

Abstract

After attending this presentation, attendees will become familiar with the possibility that a completely asymptomatic atypical pneumonia may induce sudden death, even in a previously healthy adolescent, with absence of histological signs of diffuse alveolar damage. This presentation will impact the forensic science community by making attendees aware of the insidious development of atypical pneumonia in immunocompetent subjects, focusing the possible responsible mechanisms of sudden death in such cases, in the absence of ARDS and histological signs of diffuse alveolar damage.
