Abstract
Shaken baby syndrome develop as a form of child abuse, with the majority of cases occurring during the first year of life. It results from extreme rotational cranial acceleration and deceleration effects induced by violent shaking of an infant. The characteristic injuries include subdural and subarachnoid hemorrhages, and retinal hemorrhages. We experienced three cases of shaken baby syndrome. Although the history of trauma was little known, all of these cases had subdural hemorrhages. We present the cases with a review of related literature.
Key Words: Shaken baby syndrome, Subdural hemorrhage
