Computed tomography of craniocerebral injury in the abused child.

Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) was performed in 26 infants and children with craniocerebral trauma related to abuse during a 41-month period. The pattern of brain injury differed from that seen in the nonabused traumatized infant or child. Parieto-occipital acute interhemispheric subdural hematoma (AIHSH) with associated parenchymal injury was the most frequent finding (58%). Follow-up by CT in patients with AIHSH demonstrated infarction in half and cerebral atrophy in all.
