Protuberant abdomen in infant

Abstract

Although in the battered child syndrome attention is often focused on skeletal and intracranial injuries, abdominal trauma is certainly not uncommon. Its recognition requires a high index of suspicion and a thorough clinical assessment of the child. In our patient, it was the presence of multiple bruises over the body and unexplained rapid distension of the abdomen with hematuria that led us to the direction of blunt abdominal trauma secondary to battering.
