Shaken Baby Syndrome::: causes intentional head trauma in infants... young parents with no social support are the most common presenters... baby will have a history that doesn't make sense... the baby will be listless and respond minimally to pain... look for RETINAL HEMORRHAGES on physical exam... the first test to do would be a heat CT to look for subdural hematoma
