Abstract

Background: The Shaken Baby Syndrome conceived by Guthkeltch to explain bruises, fractures, retinal and cerebral haemorrhage and encephalopathy in children, called the “triad”, can be explained by an autoimmune reaction to antigens in a genetically susceptible child. Method: Children diagnosed as suffering from Non-accidental injuries were investigated for evidence of immune response reactions following mandated vaccination and childhood illnesses. Results: It was found in all the cases reported here the response to antigenic stimulation damaged the Beta cells in the Pancreas causing Hypoinsulinaemia which inhibited the cellular uptake of Vitamin C resulting in liver dysfunction, failure of carboxylation of the Vitamin K dependent proteins resulting in haemorrhages and fractures associated with the “triad”. Conclusion: Fractures, retinal and subdural haemorrhages and encephalopathy in children – is an autoimmune response to antigenic stimulation in a genetically susceptible individual. Common antigens are the mandated vaccines, viral bacterial and parasitic infections.
