Limitations of review findings

  • Poor quality evidence 
  • No case-control studies 
  • Small numbers of children 
  • Lack of any confirmation of standard diagnostic criteria for diagnosis of bites 
  • Several studies describing large numbers of children with bites did not meet our inclusion criteria since there were no details as to confirmation that the injury was a bite
