Shaking and Other Non-Accidental Head Injuries in Children

edited by Robert A. Minns, PhD, FRCP, and J. Keith Brown, MBChB, MRCP, DCH, FRCP, 512 pp, with illus, $170, ISBN 1-898-683-35-2, Mac Keith Press, London, England, 2005.

The editors were able to recruit numerous authors for their textbook; not only medical specialists, but also multidisciplinary child protection teams including legal professionals, police, and social workers. Because most of the authors are Scottish, the book mainly represents the Scottish situation, which, of course, is comparable with the situation throughout the Western world. The high number of authors seems to be necessary because of the complexity of nonaccidental head injuries (NAHIs) and their sequelae in children, including skull fractures, epidural and subdural hemorrhages, contusions, ischemic insults, and retinal hemorrhages (RHs). Definitive diagnosis of the cause of the insult is often difficult and always important if repeated violence against the same victim or siblings is to be avoided or to prevent false or mistaken accusations against family members and caregivers.
