Given location and relative rarity, ano-genital injuries in children often prompt concern for maltreatment. We present a case of localized intravascular coagulopathy as a complication of venous malformation, which mimicked abusive trauma leading to an evaluation for maltreatment. Comprehensive assessment identified the underlying medical cause. This case represents an example of the importance of objective assessment in unusual case presentations to ensure diagnostic accuracy, and appropriate direction of medical and child protection resources.
