LOREDO ABDALA, Arturo; CASAS MUNOZ, Abigail  and  MONROY LLAGUNO, Daniella Alejandra. Child Maltreatment: Usual clinical characteristics. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.1, pp.15-23. ISSN 2448-4865.

A presentation is made of the "visible" and "invisible" characteristics of the different forms of Child abuse (ChA) based on the experience of the Comprehensive Care Clinic of Abused Children of the National Institute of Pediatrics (CAINM-INP). We present and emphasize the clinical picture of the child victim of "shaken baby syndrome" and insist in the need to prevent and diagnose it in time. We also expose the medical conditions that generate the clinical manifestations that trigger the problem such as: inconsolable crying spells, irritability and refusal to eat.

Keywords : Child abuse; visible and invisible manifestations; Shaken baby Syndrome.
