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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Well written and comprehensive … .Throughout the book, there are many excellent pictures (most from real cases with no patient identifiers), illustrations, tables, and even several flow diagrams. The chapters on neuroimaging are very useful and would be of benefit to event the most accomplished neuroradiologist." (Journal of Child Neurology, November 2007)
