A 12-year ophthalmologic experience with the shaken baby syndrome at a regional children's hospital. (1/16)

PURPOSE: To examine the ophthalmologic experience with the shaken baby syndrome (SBS) at one medical center, including clinical findings, autopsy findings, and the visual outcome of survivors. METHODS: One hundred sixteen patients admitted from 1987 to 1998 for subdural hematomas of the brain secondary to abuse were included. RESULTS: Retinal hemorrhages were detected in 84% of the children, but this important finding had been missed often by nonophthalmologists. Poor visual response, poor pupillary response, and retinal hemorrhage correlated strongly with demise of the child. One child who died had pigmented retinal scars from previous abuse, a condition not previously observed histopathologically. The clinical and autopsy findings varied somewhat, probably because of the differing conditions for examination. No correlation could be made between computerized tomography scans done during life and the subdural hemorrhage of the optic nerve found on autopsy. Half of the surviving patients were known to have good vision. One fourth of the patients had poor vision, largely due to cerebral visual impairment from bilateral injury posterior to the optic chiasm. Severe neurologic impairment correlated highly with loss of vision. CONCLUSION: This series provides information on the frequency of eye findings in SBS patients. No fundus finding is pathognomonic for SBS. When retinal hemorrhages are found in young children, the likelihood that abuse occurred is very high. The difficulty that nonophthalmologists have in detecting retinal hemorrhage may be an important limiting factor in finding these children so they may be protected from further abuse.  (+info)

Early life of the 'battered child'. (2/16)

The obstetric histories and early lives of 28 subsequently abused children are reviewed. The youngest child, more often male, was shown to be most 'at risk' especially of the mother was pregnant. Reduced antenatal care, separation of mother and child during the neonatal peroid, illness, poor features. It is felt that these and other difficulties may be regarded as 'environmental pressures' leading to child abuse by susceptible indivisuals, early recognition of such situations could lead to preventive and supportive measures.  (+info)

Non-accidental injury in children: what we do in Derby. (5/16)

A scheme for dealing with cases of non-accidental injury in children in the Derby clinical area has been operating since 1971. A stable team of doctors, policemen, and social workers deal with each case. The parents are told at once that battering is suspected, and the police and social services department co-operate closely in establishing the facts, supporting the family, and protecting the child. A psychiatric assessment of the parents may help social workers decide on the long-term care of the child, and the forensic physician is invaluable if the case has to go to court. The team has made three recommendations about prevention and management of these cases: a specialist social service team should be set up to deal with these children and regain the skills and knowledge lost when children's departments were abolished in 1971; babies should be routinely weighed naked in infant welfare clinics; and juvenile courts should be able to order a psychiatric report on the parents in care proceedings.  (+info)

Subdural hematomas in infants with benign enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces are not pathognomonic for child abuse. (6/16)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients who have benign enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces (BESS) have long been suspected of having an increased propensity for subdural hematomas either spontaneously or as a result of accidental injury. Subdural hematomas in infants are often equated with nonaccidental trauma (NAT). A better understanding of the clinical and imaging characteristics of subdural hematomas that occur either spontaneously or as a result of accidental trauma may help distinguish this group of patients from those who suffer subdural hematomas as a result of NAT. The purpose of this study is to describe the clinical and imaging characteristics of subdural hematomas that occur either spontaneously or as a result of accidental injury in infants with BESS. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of all patients with BESS complicated by subdural hematomas evaluated at a single institution from 1998 to 2004. Data concerning the patient's clinical presentation, physical findings, imaging, and management are described. RESULTS: During the study period, 7 patients with BESS complicated by subdural hematoma were identified. Their mean age at identification of the subdural hematoma was 7.4 months of age. In 5 cases, there was no recognized trauma before identification of the subdural hematoma. In 3 cases, baseline CT or MR imaging was available, showing prominent subarachnoid spaces without any evidence of subdural hemorrhage. CONCLUSION: Although suspicious for NAT, subdural hematomas can occur in children either spontaneously or as a result of accidental trauma. Caution must be exercised when investigating for NAT based on the sole presence of subdural hematomas, especially in children who are otherwise well and who have BESS.  (+info)

Bruises, blood coagulation tests and the battered child syndrome. (7/16)

Cutaneous bruises are a common symptom and a sign of injury and blood coagulation disorders in childhood. A carefully-taken history, coupled with a thorough physical examination, would lead to the diagnosis, or guide the clinician to the necessary laboratory investigations. Most children suffering from non-accidental injury can have their diagnosis established on clinical grounds alone and do not require laboratory investigation. An initial screening with full blood counts, prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time will be adequate in most cases if laboratory investigation is indicated, but the clinician must be aware of the limitations of these tests. The finding of an abnormal coagulation test does not exclude child abuse as it can be a consequence of maltreatment, or the two conditions may coexist. Whenever necessary, the opinion of a haematologist should be sought in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis, which is essential for subsequent management and the prevention of further injury in the case of child abuse.  (+info)

The sexually abused battered child. (8/16)

A total of 130 children were identified in whom both evidence of sexual abuse and non-accidental, non-genital physical injuries (bruises, fractures, scratches, burns and scalds, including failure to thrive) were found. There were 77 girls and 53 boys with mean ages 5.7 and 6.8 years respectively and the peak age between the second and seventh birthdays; this reflects previous reports indicating that physical and sexual abuse predominantly involves young children. Patterns of injury that suggested sexually motivated assault included bruises, scratches, and burns around the lower trunk and genitalia, thighs, buttocks, and upper legs including knees. Pinch and grip marks were found where the child was held. The sexual abuse often involved attempted or achieved penetration of mouth, vagina, or anus, and physical signs were seen relatively more often than in sexually abused children as a whole. Four children died and sexual aggression and child death in the domestic setting may be linked. One in six of 769 physically abused children (16.9%) and one in seven of 949 sexually abused children (13.6%) have suffered both forms of abuse.  (+info)

A collection of disease information resources and questions answered by our Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Specialists for CHILD syndrome
CHILD syndrome is a hereditary disorder transmitted as an X-linked dominant trait. The faulty gene is on the long arm of the X chromosome (Xq28). The protein/enzyme product coded by the gene has been identified as NSDHL and governs an essential step in the biosynthesis of cholesterol.. Chromosomes, which are present in the nucleus of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual. Human body cells normally have 46 chromosomes. Pairs of human chromosomes are numbered from 1 through 22 and the sex chromosomes are designated X and Y. Males have one X and one Y chromosome and females have two X chromosomes. Each chromosome has a short arm designated p and a long arm designated q. Chromosomes are further sub-divided into many bands that are numbered. For example, chromosome Xq28 refers to band 28 on the long arm of the X-chromosome. The numbered bands specify the location of the thousands of genes that are present on each chromosome.. Genetic diseases are determined by the ...

Silodosin is used to treat signs and symptoms of an enlarged prostate gland, which is also known as benign enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). Benign enlargement of the prostate is a problem that can occur in men as they get older. The prostate gland is located below the bladder. As the prostate gland gets larger, certain muscles in the gland may become tight and get in the way of the tube that drains urine from the bladder. This can cause problems in urinating, such as a need to urinate often, a weak stream when urinating, or a feeling of not being able to empty the bladder completely. ...

Pan-Cake Kidney - A rare variety of Cross Fused Ectopic Kidney - Type Congenital Anomaly. This Ultrasonography Video shows two kidneys fused across medial aspects giving the appearance of a rounded PanCake.
Urinary tract, originating from mesoblast and expanding from cranial to caudal, completes its development after 3 developmental phases: pronephros, mesonephros, and metanephros. The third phase gives rise to the permanent kidneys. Initially, they localize at ventral portion of sacrum and pelvis, close to each other. Along with abdominal and pelvic growth and decrease of body inclination, they follow an ascending route and reach their permanent sites by coming in contact with the adrenal gland at 9th week. First, hila face ventral aspect, however, during ascent, it displays 90 degree medial turn. The hilus of a kidney that attained its final permanent position, faces anterolateral aspect. During ascent, they proceed through a bifurcation formed by umbilical arteries. If one of the kidneys fail to pass this point, it remains within the pelvis next to the common iliac artery. This kidney is called as pelvic or ectopic kidney, and is associated with malrotation [1, 2]. Renal ectopy is a relatively ...

Abusive head trauma, also known as shaken baby syndrome, is a term that no parent ever wants to hear.. Usually, when a doctor utters those words, a baby is dead or dying, and a parent is going to go to jail on charges of child abuse or murder. For years, doctors were quick to diagnose a baby with shaken baby syndrome, but now the evidence may be too inconclusive to tell for sure.. Signs of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Shaken baby syndrome describes injuries to a babys brain that supposedly occurs when the baby is shaken violently in a fit of frustration by the babys caretaker. According to the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, head trauma does not always exhibit external signs of injuries such as difficulty breathing, seizure, or facial or scalp injury.. To diagnose shaken baby syndrome, doctors look for brain swelling, retinal hemorrhage (bleeding in the eyes), subdural hematoma (bleeding in the brain), damage to the spinal cord, or broken ribs. According to the American Academy of ...
Fractured fibula should be added to the differential diagnosis of atraumatic limp in childhood. Unexplained fractures in young children are suggestive of non-accidental injury. In each of the described cases the possibility of non-accidental injury was considered and discussed with the parents and in some cases with Social Services. In no case was the diagnosis of non-accidental injury sustained. Simple fracture of the fibula does not suggest non-accidental injury in children over 1 year of age.5-7 There are reports of apparently spontaneous stress fractures of tibia or fibula in toddlers.8,9. It may seem perverse to diagnose irritable hip in the absence of physical signs apart from limp, but the diagnosis is made by exclusion, and clinical assessment of these children is often problematic. These cases illustrate the difficulties of physical examination. Pain and tenderness at the hip is often minimal and careful observation and palpation of the entire limb, as in these cases, may be ...

Shaken baby syndrome is a type of inflicted traumatic brain injury that happens when a baby is violently shaken. A baby has weak neck muscles and a large, heavy head. Shaking makes the fragile brain bounce back and forth inside the skull and causes bruising, swelling, and bleeding, which can lead to permanent, severe brain damage or death. The characteristic injuries of shaken baby syndrome are subdural hemorrhages (bleeding in the brain), retinal hemorrhages (bleeding in the retina), damage to the spinal cord and neck, and fractures of the ribs and bones. These injuries may not be immediately noticeable. Symptoms of shaken baby syndrome include extreme irritability, lethargy, poor feeding, breathing problems, convulsions, vomiting, and pale or bluish skin. Shaken baby injuries usually occur in children younger than 2 years old, but may be seen in children up to the age of 5 ...

In March 2016, research groups in Brazil and the United States reported that Zika virus (ZIKV) of African lineage (Uganda strain MR 766) can infect and kill human cortical neural progenitor cells and block their normal growth and development. Small numbers of ZIKV infections have been documented in Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda, and elsewhere in Africa since the 1950s. ZIKV has not been reported to be associated with microcephaly following these small outbreaks, although widespread surveillance has not been done. Nevertheless, given the much larger epidemics of ZIKV and microcephaly in Brazil in 2015 and 2016, these 2 in vitro studies are concerning enough to warrant prospective studies monitoring for microcephaly following ZIKV outbreaks in Africa..

Landeros v. Flood was a 1976 court case in the state of California involving child abuse and alleged medical malpractice. In 1971, Gita Landeros, a minor, was seen in the emergency room by Dr. Flood for injuries inflicted by her mother and the mothers common law husband. Dr. Flood failed to diagnose battered child syndrome and also did not report the injuries to proper civil authorities in violation of California law. The child was released to the custody of her mother and the mothers common law husband, where she experienced further injury at their hands. The parents fled the state, but were apprehended and convicted of criminal child abuse. Gita Landeros brought a civil suit in tort for damages against Dr. Flood. The trial court dismissed her case as a matter of law. The case was appealed and decided in 1976 by the California Supreme Court. GITA LANDEROS, Appellant, a minor, sought review of a judgment of the Superior Court of Santa Clara County (California), which sustained general ...

Parents of a 4-month-old baby who died of shaken baby syndrome in 2007 are facing the courts in connection with the fatal incident of child abuse, according to the Clarion Ledger. Judge Tomie Green believes that both parents, who live in Jackson, Mississippi, are guilty of child neglect and abuse that occurred on multiple occasions. Monday, July 27, father Christopher Brown Sr., age 28, told Judge Green that the babys injuries occurred when he was throwing the child into the air and the infant accidentally landed on the floor. Brown claims that he shook his son because the child appeared to be in a daze. At Mondays sentencing, a forensic pathologist testified that the babys death resulted from shaken baby syndrome, despite Browns story. According to the autopsy, little Brown Jr. had suffered previous injuries, as well, for which the couple said they did not seek medical treatment because they were afraid theyd lose the child, even though they claimed the injuries resulted from an accident. ...
