Description

Recognition and diagnosis of child abuse and neglect creates an important foundation for the protection of children. Physicians and other healthcare providers have a fundamental role in this process, and need to be confident that they can identify correctly the signs and symptoms that provide clues to non-accidental injuries resulting from child maltreatment.

Diagnosis of Non-accidental Injury: Illustrated Clinical Cases is an invaluable tool to aid prompt and appropriate diagnosis, presenting various types of findings and challenging the reader with both common and not-so-common manifestations that may result from – or be confused with – child abuse and neglect.

The book describes various clinical scenarios through a brief clinical history accompanied by high-quality clinical images. Questions focus on the important concepts to be learned from each case. The answers are revealed after a turn of the page, sometimes with additional images to explain critical aspects, and feature a diagnosis, the ‘ruling out’ of abuse or neglect, further diagnostic options where relevant, and helpful treatments.

Reviews

The information is concise and is appropriately referenced. The book helps engage readers with thought-provoking clinical questions and exposesthem to nonaccidental injuries that are not commonly seen." - Michael G.
