Abstract

Child abuse remains a relatively frequent cause of orthopedic injuries in infants and children, and, although the classic signs of abuse are still useful for identifying victims, more careful observation and more sophisticated diagnostic tests, such as collagen synthesis, may be required to identify less severely injured victims. Recently observed changes in injury patterns and age incidences should be considered in the evaluation of a child suspected of being a child abuse victim.
