Overview

Clinics in Developmental Medicine No. 162

The Research Programme on Shaken Baby Syndrome in Edinburgh is internationally recognised for its prominent ongoing research into the epidemiology, bio-mechanics, primary and secondary brain insults, neuroradiological aspects, medical-social aspects, and neurodevelopmental and neuropsychometric sequelae of shaking a baby. In this book, a highly distinguished team of experts from the programme present the clinician with the latest findings on the syndrome, covering the diagnosis of the syndrome itself and the long-term disability that results which, unlike other forms of child abuse associated with psychological scars, is also associated with a high degree of life-long physical and intellectual disability. This will be invaluable reading for all professionals concerned with diagnosing and treating this syndrome.
