Description

Written by and for professionals in disciplines ranging from general and child abuse paediatrics, to surgery, emergency medicine, pathology, dentistry, nursing and social work, the book reflects current, and increasing, knowledge in this field.

The book contains high-quality representative photographs of diagnostic possibilities. The authors stress throughout the importance of including a broad range of possibilities in their differential diagnoses so that a non-inflicted condition is not labelled child abuse, and an inflicted injury cannot be mistaken for a more innocent condition.
