To the Editor Mr Sandin and colleagues1 studied the risk of autism among offspring born after in vitro fertilization (IVF) with a population-based prospective cohort study design using data from the Swedish national health registers. The authors focused on the narrow diagnosis of infantile and childhood autism (autistic disorder) and did not include other forms of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
