Skin conditions simulating child abuse.

Abstract

Knowledge of the cutaneous manifestations of child abuse is critical to the accurate identification and reporting of abusive injuries. Physicians must also be aware of cutaneous abnormalities which mimic abusive injuries in order to avoid unnecessary reporting of abuse. We report two children with cutaneous abnormalities which mimicked child abuse and review other skin conditions reported in the literature which have been mistaken for child abuse.
