About this book

The interpretation of skin lesions in children that may be due to abuse is often not straightforward, and many reports have been published on dermatological disorders and accidental injuries that were unjustly regarded as signs of child abuse. This book describes in detail the cutaneous manifestations of the physical abuse of children and devotes particular attention to differential diagnosis. Careful guidance is provided on the optimal evaluation of children presenting with findings potentially attributable to abuse. The numerous images and detailed background information will develop the ability of the reader to assess and interpret the clinical signs of abuse, and to distinguish these signs from other causes of injury, such as accidents and self-mutilation, and dermatological disorders. "Cutaneous Manifestations of Child Abuse" will be invaluable for pediatric dermatologists, pediatricians, forensic experts, and others who deal with the physical abuse of children.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to alert pediatricians, pediatric dermatologists, and forensic experts to the signs of child abuse. … This book achieves its purpose in enlightening dermatologists and pediatricians as to the broad range of skin manifestations due to child abuse and the medical diagnoses that must be considered and eliminated before the diagnosis of child abuse is made. The authors have created an important reference on a subject about which all physicians should be educated and alert.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
