Subject:Re: survival of physically abused children

Dear colleagues, in some cases here in Italy nfants and toddlers who sustained “unexplained” fractures (of long bones and even skull) are left with their mothers, under supervision either of other relatives or in a foster home. This owes to the fact that quite often physicians are not very clear in their evaluations, and lawyers arrive at the Courthouse much faster than medical certitudes. I remember reading, many years ago, paper pointing to the high risk of physically abused children left in custody of their presumably abusive parents; however, I haven’t been able to find it. May you help me? Many thanks, and have a nice weekend. Virginio Dr. Virginio ODDONE, M.D. V. Avogadro 6 10121 - Torino (Italy) e-mail: oddovir@ipsnet.it ****************** J'ai enfin le droit de saluer des êtres que je ne connais pas Ils passent devant moi et s'accumulent au loin Tandis que tout ce que j'en vois m'est inconnu Et leur espoir n'est pas moins fort que le mien. (Apollinaire, Le musicien de Saint-Merry.) Per loro natura tutti gli uomini desiderano di sapere. All men by nature desire to know Tous les hommes désirent naturellement de savoir. (Aristoteles, Metaphysica, Liber I, I, 1).
