Description - Diagnosis of Non-accidental Injury by Vincent J. Palusci

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.
