Abstract Share this page

The SBS hypothesis arose out of attempts to explain the origin of a series of clinical features recognized as forming a syndrome. This syndrome produced intracranial haemorrhages without evidence of external injury to the head. It appeared that the only way such injuries could be produced was by rotational inertia, such as might occur during manual shaking of the infant. Another feature of this syndrome was some prior dysphagia. It had been noticed that:- “The infant may have a history of poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy, and/or irritability occurring for days or weeks prior to the time of initial health care contact”. This was construed as a provoking factor that could cause some emotionally vulnerable carers to shake the infant. The syndrome became known as Shaken Baby Syndrome [1]. The concept of SBS has subsequently been modified, renamed, broadened etc but this initial definition, closest to the unexplained syndrome originally recognized, is referred to in this article as True Shaken Baby Syndrome.
