Child Abuse Fracture Patterns

What do you look for on a skeletal survey? What fractures are pathognomic for child abuse? Hmm? Do you know? Well, watch this and then let me know.


  1. Simple, informative video regarding child abuse. I like the radiograph examples and the commentary explanation was very helpful.

  2. The drawings made it very easy to understand the mechanism of injuries and will definitely stick in my mind now when something suspicious arises. The x-rays with the explanation made it so simple to understand what to look for. I plan to refer back to this video again during residency.
