Child Abuse Case 22

A 6-year-old girl, being evaluated for a well child appointment, is noted to have these marks on her back. She was born in Africa and her family now lives locally after emigrating as refugees. These lesions are non-painful and the family indicates that she developed them while being treated for an illness as an infant.
