What are the signs and symptoms of skeletal injuries associated with child abuse?

The signs and symptoms of skeletal injuries related to child abuse include visible deformity of the limb or body part, swelling with tenderness and limited use of the affected limb. Some experts report that greater than 1/3 of abused children will have some type of bone fracture. If a child has multiple fractures involving multiple bones or multiple fractures in various stages of healing, child abuse should be strongly suspected in the absence of diseases of the bones.
