J AAPOS. 1999 Dec;3(6):383-4. doi: 10.1016/s1091-8531(99)70052-2.

Abstract

The classic ophthalmologic finding in nonaccidental traumatic injury is bilateral widespread retinal hemorrhage with or without intracranial hemorrhage. We present 3 cases of unilateral retinal hemorrhage associated with ipsilateral intracranial bleeds to extend the many different presentations of nonaccidental trauma.
