Description

Pediatric abusive head trauma is a type of inflicted traumatic brain injury that happens when a baby or young child is violently shaken with or without traumatic blunt impact of the head. It has been known by many terms over the years. Beginning in the early 1970s, the term whiplash-shaken infant syndrome was used to identify the association of intracranial injuries, retinal hemorrhage and long bone fractures attributable to child abuse among infants (Dias, et al., 2005). This severe form of child abuse (NIH, 2009) has also been called shaken baby syndrome or shaken infant syndrome, shaken impact syndrome, infant shaken impact syndrome, infant whiplash-shake injury syndrome, abusive head trauma and inflicted, non-accidental or intentional head injury (Dias, et al., 2005).
