Excerpts from the Course

This slide shows the leg of an older child that has multiple patterned injuries in a localized region of the body, the left lower extremity. Notice that there are bruises and superficial lacerations or abrasions, sometimes within the same mark. Depending on the force of the impact there might be a bruise or contusion or with enough force, there might be shearing of the skin leading to loss of the skin’s integrity. These marks are an example of “loop” patterned marks and are from a folded linear implement like a cord, wire or flexible belt. These marks indicate that there were multiple impacts with the object. The flexibility of the object is indicated by the way that it wraps around the curved contour of the leg. Even if you aren’t sure about exactly what implement was used, it should be obvious that this pattern is not consistent with marks from typical activities in a child.
