    Abstract

    Descriptions of the nature of pediatric injury as reported by parents and caretakers is frequently tainted, even fraudulent. We present here such a case of trauma incurred in the presence of a parent which resulted in hepatoduodenal ligament laceration with associated pancreatic and duodenal injuries, the certain result of severe blunt force abdominal trauma. These findings were at variance with the father's description of the events leading up to the child's untimely demise.
