Neuroimaging for Children Presenting with Head Trauma
AbstractThis issue of the Southern Medical Journal contains an important article by Fickenscher et al,1 describing neuroimaging findings in a group of 58 children younger than 20 months, evaluated for either abusive head trauma (AHT)2 or accidental head injury. The paper concludes with three interesting findings: 1) children in both the abuse and accident cadres had a significant incidence of normal neurologic findings, 2) there is a significant difference between the incidence of neurologic asymptomatic presentations between the two groups (25.8% vs 55.6%, respectively), and 3) there was a significant incidence of cranial and intracranial trauma detected in both groups.
