Abstract Four cases of battered children, in whom concurrent sexual abuse was present in the patient or siblings, are presented. The occurrence of both physical and sexual abuse in the same child has not received adequate attention in the literature, yet diagnostic and intervention procedures change drastically when both are present. The possibility of sexual abuse must be considered early in the course of caring for a physically abused infant or young child.
