Hello. Welcome to JA. I am very sorry for your loss of a child. I am an Adult Neurologist, not a pulmonologist. Your question was sent to Neurology. You did not ask a specific question, so I am here to help if I can. If you are questioning specifics of the autopsy report, please ask if there are questions that fall under Neurology and I will answer them, otherwise, let me know if this is pulmonary/infectious disease, and I can tell the moderators to change this to the correct category of expert, ok?
