**SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME**
In any abusive head trauma case, the duration and force of the shaking, the number of episodes, and whether impact is involved all affect the severity of the infant’s injuries. In the most violent cases, children may arrive at the emergency room unconscious, suffering seizures, or in shock. But in many cases, infants may never be brought to medical attention if they don’t exhibit such severe symptoms.

In less severe cases, a child who has been shaken may experience:
* lethargy
* irritability
* vomiting
* poor sucking or swallowing
* decreased appetite
* lack of smiling or vocalizing
* rigidity
* seizures
* difficulty breathing
* altered consciousness
* unequal pupil size
* an inability to lift the head
* an inability to focus the eyes or track movement
