Abstract

To examine patient characteristics, patterns of injury, forensic evidence, and the frequency of sexual assault in postmenopausal rape victims from 1986–1991. Methods: Medical and forensic records were reviewed from 129 postmenopausal women (50 years of age or older) and 129 women from a comparison group (14-49 years of age) who reported having been sexually assaulted. Statistical analysis was performed by Student t test, χ2, multiple logistic regression, or Fisher exact test. Results: Postmenopausal women represented 2.2% of women reporting sexual assault in Dallas County. The postmenopausal victim was more often white (64%), whereas the younger victim was more often black (53%). Drug or alcohol use within the previous 24 hours was more common in the younger group. Trauma, in general, was common, occurring in 67% of the postmenopausal women and 71% of the younger group (P = not significant). Genital trauma was more common in the postmenopausal group (43 versus 18%; P
