Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two infants with non-accidental inflicted neuro-trauma are reported. One presented with sudden onset lethargy, respiratory difficulty and unexplained seizures. There were bilateral retinal bleeds and extradural hemorrhage. Other was a well thriving child who had 2 seizures and was noted to lack visual fixation. Retinal hemorrhages and chronic subdural and intraparenchymal hemorrhages were subsequently discovered. We highlight the importance of suspecting child abuse in infants with sudden unexplained unresponsiveness, seizures or respiratory difficulty and the unusual occurrence of extradural hemorrhage.
