SBS/SIDS Index:
(Shaken Baby Syndrome)
(Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)

Overview
There are many medical conditions that can mimic Shaken Baby Syndrome. A good understanding can be obtained by reading the original of the two articles below.

Frontline: If It's Not Abuse…
... Over the next 20 years, Laposata researched and collected interesting cases he saw, and in 2005, he published an article in the American Journal of Clinical Pathology reviewing some of the diseases that had led to child abuse misdiagnoses.

In particular, Laposata's article focuses on blood disorders that can lead to bleeding and/or bruising, including:
  • Von Willebrand disease -- a hereditary disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly
  • Vitamin K deficiency -- a rare condition where the body can't absorb the vitamin, which is necessary for blood to properly clot
  • Leukemia -- cancer of the blood cells
  • Ideopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) -- a condition where a low platelet count prevents blood from clotting properly
  • Henoch-Schonlein purpura -- an abnormal immune system response that manifests as purple spots on the skin. The cause of this condition is unknown, and it's more common in children than adults.
Laposata created a PowerPoint presentation that highlights the difficulty in diagnosing abuse cases. He shows a photo of a child with bruises from a bleeding disorder next to a photo of a child who was abused and asks which of the cases is abuse. "I've been looking at patients with bleeding problems for years, more than two decades," he says. "And if you show me the two children with the bruises on their legs, I couldn't tell you that that one is the bleeding disorder. I'd have to do the blood test to find out."

And what kind of medical conditions are we talking about that seem to mimic child abuse?

Infection is a very important one, and when we started really looking at these cases more carefully, we started finding babies who may have had an ongoing illness. They may have had relatively nonspecific symptoms, because a baby can't tell you, "I have a headache," "I have got an earache" or whatever, so they may act with just maybe irritability, not eating well; they may not be sleeping well. And sometimes they can get worse if they don't get immediate medical attention and diagnosis, and then at some point they may crash, like this child did. So infection is very important, and undiagnosed infection may be even a virus that maybe the majority of babies may get over in a few days.
