Strains of Escherichia coli producing cytotoxic necrotizing factor (CNF) have been isolated from intestinal contents of 16.8% of babies who died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and 16.5% of faeces from healthy babies. While no difference in CNF carriage was seen, it is noteworthy that these CNF-producing E. coli are present in such specimens. Some of the CNF-producing E. coli belonged to serotypes associated with this factor in other parts of the world.
