Abstract

Three premobile infants with unexplained bruising are described. Although, they were asymptomatic otherwise, evaluation led to the recognition of inflicted rib fractures in two and hemophilia A in one. Although such bruises are inconsequential themselves, they may provide the opportunity to recognize serious problems before major injury or morbidity occurs.
