Author information

  • Department of Psychological Medicine, Hospitals for Sick Children, London, U.K.


Recent interest has centred on the possible long-term physical effects of child sexual abuse. Research is now beginning to be carried out in this area. Some studies are portraying associations that are difficult to substantiate, as the methodological problems are considerable. This article attempts to summarize the literature to date and set some contexts for possible future research directions.
