"This book will be indispensable to all paediatricians and clinicians involved in examining children. It will also be invaluable to many other professionals including the judiciary. Finally it is hoped that its publication may act as a stimulus to encourage much needed further research into this area of paediatric medicine."

The Rt Hon the Baroness Butler-Sloss, GBE

The Physical Signs of Child Sexual Abuse publication is for use by health professionals working in the field of child protection. It is based on the best available evidence. New evidence, at any time, could invalidate the findings and it is therefore the reader's responsibility to keep up to date with the literature. It is expected that the reader will be relying on appropriate professional knowledge and expertise to interpret the contents in the context of the circumstances of the individual child. The publication should be used in conjunction with other appropriate and up-to-date literature and, where necessary, supplemented by expert advice.

Responsibility for appropriate practice in the examination and assessment of children who may have been sexually abused lies solely with the individual health professional.
