Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of pancreatitis associated with trauma of child abuse is reported. Skeletal changes secondary to pancreatitis developed and the distribution of the bony lesions included both metaphyseal and epiphyseal growth centers. The coexistence of pancreatitis, child abuse, and subsequent skeletal lesions is again emphasized, as well as the unique occurrence of lesions in the epiphyseal centers.
