Actress Brittany Murphy 's death was caused by pneumonia, a US coroner has ruled.
The 'Cluless' star died in December, aged 32.
The report found that the actress could have survived if she had seen a doctor in time.
Coroner spokesman Craig Harvey added that iron-deficiency anaemia and "multiple drug intoxication" were secondary factors in her death. All of the drugs were prescription medicines.
The report ruled that the death was accidental and no evidence of wrongdoing had been found.
According to reports, Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack and mother, Sharon Murphy, said the 'Just Married' star had been experiencing flu-like symptoms in the days before she died.
She had collapsed at her Los Angeles home and was pronounced dead in hospital.
Full details of the report are to be issued in the coming weeks.
