The clinical signs and symptoms of duodenal injury caused by child abuse are often nonspecific, and external signs of trauma may be absent. In four children with unexplained gastrointestinal symptoms, sonography detected and showed the extent of a duodenal hematoma resulting from child abuse. In two of the children, sonography was also used to follow the evolution of the duodenal hematoma.
