A study compared the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder and other diagnoses in three groups of abused children (ages 7-13), sexual only (n=127), physical only (n=43), and both (n=34). Children who had been both physically and sexually abused appeared to be at the highest risk of psychiatric disturbance. (Author/CR)
