    Abstract

    Physical abuse and child abuse can manifest themselves as many different appearances. However, there are some cultural practices of Oriental medicine that may mimic physical and/or child abuse. This paper will discuss the practice of skin scraping, cupping, and moxibustion, which has been misdiagnosed as physical/child abuse by unfamiliar examiners.
