Empiric therapy of perianal lesions in a sexually abused child: Medical and forensic implications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A two-year, eight-month-old boy was diagnosed clinically with perianal warts and treated with topical 5-Fluorouracil, with subsequent resolution of the lesions. The child disclosed sexual abuse, and subsequent physical abuse was also documented. Attempts to identify the perpetrator have been hampered by the child’s young age and resolution of the skin lesions. The forensic implications of this case are discussed.
