Abstract

Domestic abuse is a serious problem that may present directly or indirectly in the clinical setting. The astute physician may have the opportunity to directly intervene in this national dilemma. We present a patient who indirectly sought help through the medical setting, review the physician's responsibilities, and offer guidelines for management.
