Does Presentation Time Matter in Abusive Head Trauma

With interest, we read the article by Vadivelu and in this article, the authors performed a novel retrospective study of the relationship between time delay to presentation for medical treatment following non-accidental head trauma (NAHT) in pediatric patients with patient outcomes at discharge [1]. Categorizing time delay as <6 hours (without delay), 6-12 hours (moderate delay), and >12 hours (severe delay), it was concluded that patients who presented to pediatric emergency departments after a moderate delay following NAHT were associated with the worst outcomes.
