Shaken Baby Syndrome

In the past three decades, there has been growing awareness of the problem of child abuse involving the violent shaking of babies. This is a special category of TBI in which blunt head trauma may not occur but diffuse axonal injury is nonetheless present. Babies with this injury may present with signs ranging from lethargy and irritability to seizures and coma.
