Lazoritz, Stephen; Baldwin, Sandra; Kini, Narendra
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n10 p1009-14 Oct 1997
This study examined recent literature describing the Shaken Infant Syndrome and compared it to John Caffey's original descriptions in 1946. Retrospective evaluation of 71 recent cases and 27 case examples offered by Caffey was also performed. Results indicated the recent cases more likely to involve impact trauma, male perpetrators, and admission of shaking or other trauma. (Author/DB)
