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)

Microcephaly following baby battering and shaking. (3/16)

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)

The X-linked dominant CHILD syndrome (congenital hemidysplasia with ichthyosiform nevus and limb defects) is a rare developmental defect characterized by a strictly lateralized inflammatory nevus. In
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 ...

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 ...

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.

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. ...

Abstract: For a number of years, clinicians and researchers have recognized the existence of a subgrouping of children who exhibit chronic and pervasive signs of inattention, impulsivity, and physical restlessness, as well as deficiencies in rule-governed behavior, which deviate significantly from age and gender expectations (Barkley; 1981; Ross & Ross, 1982; Wender, 1971). Since first being identified by Still (1902), this particular pattern of behavioral difficulties has undergone numerous changes in the diagnostic terminology used to describe it. Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without Hyperactivity), Hyperkinesis, Hyperkinetic Reaction of Childhood, Hyperactive Child Syndrome, Minimal Brain Damage, and Minimal Brain Dysfunction are some of the many labels that have been applied to this disorder in the past. With the arrival of the recently revised third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM III-R, American Psychiatric Association, 1987), this same behavioral constellation ...
Non-Accidental Head Injury describes an injury to a childs brain that is unexplained. This is caused by the moving of the brain inside of the skull.
By Christina England. Over the years, parents have more and more commonly been blamed of child abuse if their child is diagnosed with the "triad" of injuries associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) after receiving a vaccine. The "triad" includes bleeding inside the brain, bleeding behind the eyes and swelling or inflammation of the brain.. When a medical professional suspects that a baby has been violently shaken, they will examine the baby for the "triad" of injuries associated with SBS. These are subdural haematoma (bleeds inside the brain), retinal haemorrhages (bleeds behind the eyes) and cerebral edema (swelling or inflammation inside the brain).. The Triad of Injuries. Bleeding Inside the Brain. Norma Guthkelch, a retired neurosurgeon, wrote the first description of Shaken Baby Syndrome in 1971 in his paper Infantile Subdural Haematoma and its Relationship to Whiplash Injuries, in which he discussed 23 cases of strongly suspected parental assault on children under the age of three. He ...

Shaken baby syndrome is brain injury that occurs when someone shakes a baby or throws a baby against an object. It is a form of child abuse. It may happen to children up to 5 years of age, but it is most common in babies younger than 1 year old.. It is never okay to shake or throw a young child. It may not leave any obvious sign of injury, but it can cause serious long-term problems or even death. Shaken baby syndrome often occurs when a baby wont stop crying and a caregiver loses control of his or her emotions. Parents can help prevent this problem by learning healthy ways to relieve ...
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS), also known as abusive head trauma (AHT), is a diagnosis that may include a combination of findings including broken bones, skull fractures, brain bleeding and retinal hemorrhages. SBS occurs when a baby is shaken repeatedly, often by a frustrated caretaker in an effort to quiet an inconsolable baby. A babys head is disproportionately large and the blood vessels are fragile, which makes the brain and eyes more susceptible to bleeding from a shaking injury. Most children who are victims of SBS are under one year of age, with many of them being under six months of age. Injuries from SBS can lead to permanent visual and developmental disabilities, or even death.. ...
Shaken baby syndrome is a term weve come to hear too often in news reports. Its an entirely preventable form of child abuse caused by frustration or a lack of experience in caring for infants. Caring for an infant can be challenging. It can be difficult to know why a babys crying or how fragile babies really are. A babys cries can be unnerving to people unaccustomed to the sound. In an effort to stop the crying, a caretaker may pick up the baby and, out of frustration and anger, shake the baby to quiet it. But babies have big heads and their neck muscles are too weak to support the head. Shaking a baby rattles the brain, which can result in brain damage, blindness, or even death.. Experts from the Child Abuse Prevention Project offer a few suggestions on ways a parent can quiet their nerves when caring for a crying baby. Consider offering the baby a pacifier. Take the baby for a ride in a stroller or in a car. Put the baby in a safe place and walk away. Be sure to check on the baby every ten ...

Wittmeier and Mulder wrote that it is crucial that primary care providers and other clinicians discuss container baby syndromes components with their expectant patients before delivery.. "It is imperative for prevention messaging to begin during pregnancy and be reinforced during the postpartum period… It would be ideal if parents/guardians could receive this information first from prenatal educators and prenatal care providers (midwives, obstetricians, family doctors). Postpartum nurses could reinforce this information before discharge from the hospital, and public health nurses could explain the importance of such prevention activities and demonstrate strategies in the home environment," they wrote.. "Ideally, information pertaining to preventing the development of a head positional preference could [also] be delivered by family physicians and pediatricians who see infants during the first few weeks of life," Wittmeier and Mulder added..

High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled.. Doxazosin works by relaxing blood vessels so that blood passes through them more easily. This helps to lower blood pressure.. Doxazosin is also used to treat benign (noncancerous) enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia [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 enlarges, 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 ...
Introduction: Prostate is a glandular organ present only in males. It surrounds the neck of bladder & the first part of urethra and contributes a secretion to the semen. The gland is conical in shape and measures 3 cm in vertical diameter and 4 cm in transverse diameter. It has got five lobes anterior, posterior, two laterals and a median lobe. Since the first part of the urethra pass by it any lesion in the prostate will produce difficulty in passing urine.. Diseases of the prostate gland: 1) Prostitutes:. This is the inflammation of the prostate gland due to bacterial contagion. 2) Benign enlargement of the prostate:. This is a non malignant tumour of the prostate seen after the age of 50. 3) Cancer of the prostate: This is the 4th most common cause of death from malignant diseases in males. Cancer of the prostate. Cancer of the prostate is directly linked with the male sex hormones (androgens). If the levels of sex hormone increase the growth rate of cancer also increases. It is found that ...
Blackmores Proseren contains the extract of the herb Serenoa at the recommended dosage used in published clinical trials. These trials showed the extract used in Proseren provides effective relief from the troublesome symptoms of medically diagnosed Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (benign enlargement of the prostate) such as frequent urination, hesitancy, impairment of stream and nocturia.The mechanism by which serenoa works is not fully understood but most likely involve inhibition of the enzyme 5-alpha..
BPH is also called benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP or BPE), adenofibromyomatous hyperplasia and benign prostatic hypertrophy (technically incorrect usage), is a benign (noncancerous) increase in size of the prostate. What Is BPH? The prostate is a small gland approximately the size and shape of a walnut. It sits directly below the bladder, in front of the rectum. The prostate is a part of the male reproductive tract. It produces fluid that combines with sperm to make semen. At birth, the prostate gland is tiny. When testosterone levels rise during puberty, the prostate grows rapidly, doubling in size by age 20. Growth slows down for the next two decades and the prostate usually does not cause problems for many years. Less than 10% of 30-year-old men have an enlarged prostate. When a man reaches his 40s, the prostate goes through a second growth spurt. Half of all men have an enlarged prostate by the time they reach age 60, and by age 85, 90% of men have an enlarged prostate. The prostate ...

Purpose: To evaluate patients with carcinoma of cervical stump (CCS) and analyse different clinico-pathologic factors affect prognosis. Patients and Methods: This study was carried out through review of clinical records of patients. Recorded data included information on age, tumor stage, presenting symptoms, size of tumor, histopathology, grade, type, cause of subtotal hysterectomy (STH), treatment and follow-up results. Staging according to International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) staging system was done through: PHYSICAL examination, pelvic examination under anaesthesia, chest X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the abdomen and pelvis, cystoscopy, rectosigmoidoscopy and intravenous pyelography. Prognostic factors as age, size of tumor, stage, lymph node (LN) involvement, pathological type, grade and type of CCS either true or coincidental were analysed through multivariate analysis. Results: 62% of patients are above 50 years with stage II in 48.7%. Squamous

I dont know if youre honestly mistaken or if youre picking a fight on purpose but ill pretend the former is the case and actually spell out that her whole issue is not related to shaking babies or not shaking babies. Its that a for profit entity is pushing the idea of SBS which has led to extensive incarcerations sought by witch hunt-like prosecutors when many professionals in child medicine and anatomy are standing silenced in the background saying, "excuse me, this syndrome has no standard diagnostic pattern, the injuries sustained are ones that in their expert opinions shouldnt be without coinciding neck trauma, that SBS cases where parents were put in prison didnt usually show this should-be link, and quite a bit more good information.

Although the sharp increase in homicide rates among US youth has begun to reverse1 as overall homicide rates among other age groups have declined in recent years,2 the public health challenge of reducing firearm fatalities is growing. Firearms account for an increasing proportion of intentional injury deaths in the US, especially among the homicides of young persons: the proportion of homicide deaths attributed to firearms among 15-34 year olds rose from 66.4% in 19851 to 79.8% in 1997,3 the most recent year for which final data are available. The proportion of suicide deaths of 15-34 year olds attributed to firearms remained stable during this same period (57.3% in 19851 and 56.8% in 19973).. Preventing firearm related deaths is a substantial challenge. Most efforts have focused on the availability or accessibility of firearms. Whether the strategy is to restrict or to increase firearm availability and accessibility,4-7 an underlying goal is to equalize force in situations with the potential ...
The labor and delivery of a child is a physically stressful event for both a mother and her baby. If a child endures this process without significant injury, parents may assume that the majority of danger has passed. Unfortunately, though, there are many instances of medical malpractice that may result in serious injury and health problems for infants after birth. Shaken baby syndrome is an example of this type of careless behavior and can lead to severe complications for the child.. Anyone that has seen their child suffer from an injury understands the fear and the stress associated with this type of incident. If your child has developed shaken baby syndrome as a result of improper handling or treatment from a hospital staff member, you may be eligible for financial compensation for related medical expenses.

Computed tomography urography (CTU) is today the imaging method used to investigate patients with suspected urinary tract malignancy, replacing the old imaging method intravenous pyelography (IVP) about a decade ago. The downside of this shift was that the effective radiation dose to the examined patient was eight times higher for CTU compared to IVP. Based on four different studies, the present thesis focused on efforts to reduce the CTU radiation dose.. In study I, the number of cysts and solid lesions in the separate scan phases was evaluated in 57 patients undergoing four-phase CTU 1997-98. The number of scans was reduced from four to three when the nephrographic scan was abolished following study I.. Study II registered the diameter of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and the presenting symptoms in the total number of patients (n=232) diagnosed with RCC between 1997 and 2003. The results from study II showed that the critical size for RCCs to cause macroscopic hematuria was ≥ 4 cm. Study III ...

Shaken Baby Syndrome has been prevalent in the news lately, not from an increase in incidents, but from a larger push for awareness of this painful topic. The Womans Hospital of Greensboro has created an "evidence-based shaken baby prevention program" that will begin educating parents after they have given birth but before they are discharged.. The goal of the program is to significantly reduce Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) in North Carolina by 50 percent in the next five years. Standing out, this intervention program is the largest and most comprehensive in the nation. By sharing this information with all new parents, the hospital will benefit an estimated 125,000 babies a year.. SBS affects between 1,200 to 1,400 babies a year, and one out of four dont survive. The brain injury resulting from this type of brain trauma includes seizures, mental retardation, delayed development, paralysis, impaired cognitive function, broken bones and more.

Based on this medical diagnosis, several parents have been accused of abusing and damaging their children, and have been given lengthy prison sentences as a result. Some conventional medical experts have testified that there is no other explanation for this condition, and convictions were based largely, if not solely, on this testimony. It is perhaps fair to say that the conventional medical establishment is not entirely in agreement with this partial testimony, particularly after a number of parents appealed against their sentences, which were subsequently quashed ...
Everyone wants answers, just as much as Serenitys grandmother wants answers. Theres no doubt that some parents kick kids around like footballs. The problem is ... where do you get the WHOLE truth? What do the medical people mean by saying that the injuries were "similar to" shaken baby syndrome? Either they are, or they arent. And this is important, particularly when, as one expert says, at least half of all parents tried for Shaken Baby Syndrome, have been wrongly convicted. Apart from Tony Wall at the Sunday Star Times, the rest of New Zealand media automatically assumes that any diagnosis that comes from that shrine, Starship, has to be right. Presumably under the guise of "balanced reporting" Sunday Star times, allows Michael Laws to call the family, "feral", as if they are guilty before proven so. Yet, the internet is full of stories like this one where just maybe, the parents didnt do it after all. Key lawyers, world wide, are starting to question what they see as serial injustices. ...

Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), a term later coined for a condition first articulated in 1971, is said to describe a situation in which an infant is shaken so hard that the brain rotates inside the skull, causing severe and potentially deadly brain injury, but often without any external signs of harm. SBS is said to involve a tell-tale "triad" of symptoms - brain swelling, brain hemorrhaging and retinal hemorrhaging - which, when present in an infant who has no outward signs of abuse, indicate that the child has been violently shaken. According to received medical wisdom, no other injuries or pathologies could cause these three symptoms to occur at the same time, and - because it was believed that a victim of SBS became unresponsive immediately - the last person to have physical care of the baby must have caused the injuries ...

The diagnosis is a free intestinal perforation; according to the findings on revision, the perforation is localized in the jejunum on the antimesenteric side, and is visible in the picture at the bottom on the left side. Right picture: The reason for the described clinical presentation is not a constipation; rather, an obstructive ileus due to postoperative adhesions is present which could have been suspected not only from the clinical presentation, but also by a precise history with former abdominal surgery. Compare that with the picture at the bottom on the right side showing an adhesion running over the mesentery and covering two intestinal loops with already compromised blood supply.

The article pointed out a case from the 90s where Audrey Edmunds, a day care provider, was charged with murder, convicted by a jury, and sentenced to 18 years in prison. In that trial, expert testimony indicated that a child had suffered "critical injuries that were the hallmarks of Shaken Baby Syndrome." The article pointed out the three key injuries that point to SBS --retinal hemorrhage, bleeding in the brain and brain swelling. However, if the new research proves accurate, a diagnosis of SBS might fail to account for other possible causes for the injuries usually attributed to SBS, such as "falls from a short height," which "can cause fatal head injuries that appear very similar to injuries routinely diagnosed as SBS." Indeed, years later, "one of the physicians that testified against Edmunds told a judge that he was no longer confident that the injuries were inflicted by Edmunds and that they could have occurred many hours before the baby was dropped off." In the end, the case against ...

Fourteen children (10 boys and 4 girls, aged 8 to 17 years) had 20 pheochromocytomas treated over a 36-year period from 1959 to 1995 inclusive. Nine patients had 11 tumors before 1980; 5 children had 9 tumors up to 1987. There were no new children with pheochromocytomas at our hospital from 1988 to 1995. Hypertension, sweating, headache, and visual blurring were the most common symptoms and signs (average 5 months). The most reliable biochemical investigations were the urinary catecholamines and norepinephrine.
