The X-ray shows periosteal reaction on the bones – typical of trace element deficiency, which the radiologist diagnose as ‘probably’ abusive fractures unless trace element deficiency is proved. When the Expert Paediatrician says there is “no evidence of trace element deficiency” due to no testing, despite there being no evidence at all of abuse by the parents, the child is adopted.
