||Sudden cardiac death occurs, according to WHO within an hour after the onset of the first symptoms. According to the recommendations of the European Society of Cardiology, sudden cardiac death is defined as, “natural death due to cardiac causes, announced by the sudden loss of consciousness within one hour after the debut of acute symptomatology; the pre-existing heart disease may be known but when and how death appears is unexpected. The study aims to find correlations between data history, age, sex, macroscopic diagnosis and anatomical substrate (materialized by microscopic histological examination, following that in the next steps of the experiment to complete our research with molecular investigations on archived histological samples). Of the 22 autopsies, the case of a man of 40 years, draw our attention, a man who died at home with witnesses, in the absence of premonitory symptoms or paraclinical elements and whose health status was regularly checked by the nature of his job. Forensic autopsy could not detect certain gross morphological changes in the heart.
