Resumen

El maltrato infantil es un problema de gran importancia tanto social como médico, y sus consecuencias en muchas ocasiones son irreparables. Realizamos una revisión bibliográfica con enfoque neuroquirúrgico, y analizamos con detalle las lesiones que se producen en el sistema nervioso central, estudiando su fisiopatología, las secuelas neurológicas que producen y su implicación en el tratamiento rehabilitador y el futuro de los niños.
