Abstract

Retinal hemorrhages in healthy children with or without a history of associated trauma are a strong indicator of child abuse. This report describes six cases of battered infants who presented with white-centered retinal hemorrhages. We discuss potential mechanisms for the presence of white-centered retinal hemorrhages in battered children.
