Medical illustration shows a side to side comparison with a coronal view of a normal and injured child's brain.

There are some important differences. The subarachnoid space has all but disappeared as the injured brain swells and fills up the small space inside the skull. The ventricles have become compressed and flattened.

The subdural hematoma creates pressure inside the head as the brain swells and has no space to expand within the skull. Because of this increased pressure blood vessels feeding the brain are compressed, depriving the brain of oxygen.

SBS, or shaken baby syndrome is the injury resulting from the violent shaking of an infant or child causing a rotating and whiplash like motion of the child’s head.

This illustration shows a child that has had injury to their brain. If a child is severely shaken, the blood vessels around the brain can tear and form a pool of blood between the dura and arachnoid membranes. This is called a subdural hematoma. This pooling of blood around the brain takes up space and causes increased pressure within the skull. see more at http://www.medicalartlibrary.com/shaken-baby-subdural-hematoma/

This is a medical illustration of a normal coronal section through a child's brain. The dura and arachnoid membranes surrounding the brain lie closely against each other. The potential space in between them is called the subdural space. read more about this illustration at http://www.medicalartlibrary.com/infant-brain/

SBS, or shaken baby syndrome is the injury resulting from the violent shaking of an infant or child causing a rotating and whiplash like motion of the child’s head. When very young, a child or infants head is relatively large and the neck muscles undeveloped, providing very little support.

During shaking, rapid acceleration-deceleration forces can cause the brain to strike the inner surface of the skull, resulting in bruising, swelling and diffuse axonal (nerve cell) damage. Blood vessels can tear forming a subdural hematoma. A classic finding of SBS is retinal bleeding in the back of the eye, seen during exam.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is the leading cause of death and most common cause of permanent damage and long term disability in children and infants who have been physically abused.

Consequences of SBS include: permanent brain damage, damage to eyes and vision, developmental delays, disabilities and motor impairments, paralysis, hearing loss, blindness, seizures, and death.
