EBERHARD F, Mª ELIANA; POSE L, GEORGETTE; MORA D, XIMENA  and  VERGARA A, Mª FRANCISCA. Child abuse, traumatic brain injury and image diagnosis. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.3, pp.231-237. ISSN 0370-4106.

Non-accidental Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in children is a significant social problem, which can leave significant permanent neurological sequelae, especially in children under 2 yo. This review shows the clinical symptomatological spectrum, which is sometimes quite subtle. It also provides the basis for use of images modalities for its study, to confirm a precise diagnosis.

Keywords : Child abuse; traumatic brain injury.
