The recent report on "head injury in paediatric" is very interesting. [1] In a study by Chinda et al., noted that "H1 among children is of a great concern, because of its incremental magnitude, due to increasing child labour and interstate religious discipleship among children, with attendant high mortality and permanent disabilities. [1]" In fact, the problem of improper care of paediatric head injury can be expected in any resource limited settings. The high mortality rate calls for urgent attention for proper management. An important problem is on child abuse. It is required to have a good plan to early detect the problem. [2] A study by Amaranath et al., concluded that "many injuries may be preventable with the adaptation of better public health education programmes, particularly in very young children. [3]"
