Subdural Hematomas in Children under 2 Years. Accidental or Inflicted? A 10-Year Experience.
Tzioumi, Dimitra; Oates, R. Kim
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n11 p1105-12 Nov 1998
Analysis of 38 children under 2 with subdural hematomas found the most common causes were nonaccidental injury (55%), accidents (39%), and nontraumatic causes (6%). Also, the frequent presence of retinal hemorrhages, bone and rib fractures, delay in presentation, and young age suggests child abuse as the most common cause of these injuries. (Author/DB)
