Dating subdural hematomas are caused

Subdural hemorrhage is a rare complication of the disease. Further examination also revealed ribfractures. This compresses the ribs front to back and tends to break them next to their attachment to vertebrae and laterally where they are being literally almost folded in half.

Pediatric intensive care unit. The term shaken infant syndrome probably best describes the classic pattern of injuries. Rib fractures pose difficulties similar to those of metaphyseal injuries in that they are easily overlooked on radiographs. The number, size, and type of retinal hemorrhages were recorded.

In addition to fractures, suggestive findings include blue sclerae, hearing impairment, dentinogenesis imperfecta, hypermobility of the joints, bruising and short stature. The pressure in the spinal canal and brain can then be measured. Approval of the study was obtained from the Institutional Review Board.

When a baby is shaken, the neck snaps back and forth, much like in a whiplash injury, causing the brain to hit the front and back of the skull. Two infants with a femur fracture.
