Abstract

Since the inception in 1990 of a Clinical Forensic Medicine Program at the Louisville Office of the Kentucky Medical Examiner Program, six children have undergone repeat evaluations for physical injuries. Herein, we examine the overall number of cases from January 1991 through December 1994, and the circumstances and outcomes of the six children undergoing reevaluation. Despite the implementation of an organized Forensic Medicine Program, some children in our area suffer repeated episodes of recognized abuse and death.
