Presentation of recent torture survivors to a family practice center.
J Fam Pract. 1997 Feb; 44(2):209-12.JF

Abstract

A case series of three patients who recently arrived from Guatemala with histories and examinations consistent with torture is reported. A description of the clinical presentation of torture survivors is given, with recommendations for care by the family physician. The epidemiology and prevention of torture and human rights abuses are discussed. Survivors require interventions in the following spheres: biological, ie, physical signs of trauma; psychological, eg, post-traumatic stress; and social, ie, international prevention of torture by governments.
