Abstract

The diagnosis of a Battered Child Syndrome is made by the pediatrician, surgeon and the radiologist because almost parents deny the diagnosis or refuse to answer the doctor's questions. The imaging modalities play a key role in the investigation and documentation of the battered child syndrome, because of the high frequency of the typical skeletal lesion. Although physical abuse is denied by parents, the recognition of this entity is possible by the primary diagnostic imaging study in the suspected child abuse. The imaging studies are either a bone scan and x-ray series or a complete radiolographic skeletal survey by X-ray series. In an expected intracranial injury, a CT scan of the head is mandatory We experienced a case of Battered Child Syndrome in a 6 month-old male infant who had subdural hemorrhage and fractures of skull and ribs in different stages of healing and repair. The brief review of the literature was made.
