Father in court over murder of baby
The linked story I mention because superficially it does not seems to be a case where Childrens Social Services could have any effect.
However, it is also not certain whether it is murder or another Shaken Baby Syndrome case.
What worries me about these cases where young babies die from head injuries is that the science is really not clear. If we simply blame the parents each time the danger is that the proper research to identify children at risk and take the action to prevent subdural haematomae will not happen. Babies with glutaric aciduria fall into this category.
However, on the hand it may be simply a tragic case where the father is guilty as charged.
I am trying to get a proper study done as to the deaths of children on a proper cohort basis as that is the only way of really understanding things and preventing sad situations.
A real FII case appears to have gone through in Scotland. The point about FII is that sometimes it happens, but it is a mistake to see it as the most likely differential diagnosis.
