A 7 month, 3/4 week old infant presented to the hospital with "recognized manifestations" of Shaken Baby Syndrome: subdural hematoma and retinal hemorrhages. The baby fatally fell down the basement stairs. Paramedics were called.
The abstract clearly states that many authors do not believe that a short fall can be the cause of fatal traumatic brain injury and pediatricians will claim that the caregivers lied about the history of the injuries. This case example was thoroughly investigated and the witness' accounts corroborated "that the injuries resulted from an accidental fall down carpeted stairs" and not from child abuse.
