The battered child syndrome is a form of child abuse. Not until the 19th century were children granted the same legal status as domesticated animals in regard to protection against cruelty and/or neglect. In the term "battered child syndrome" entered medicine.

"The Battered-Child Syndrome is a term used by us," wrote the authors, "to characterize a clinical condition in young children who have received serious physical abuse, generally from a parent or foster parent." I have just written a book about a case that occurred in Venice in the 18th century.

The language of the ‘battered child syndrome’ was broadly replaced by concerns around ‘non-accidental injury’, ‘child abuse’, ‘child protection’ and, eventually, ‘safeguarding’.
