Associated conditions are those which appear
statistically related, but do not have
a clear cause or effect relationship.

that simply appear with higher frequency in people
who have Child abuse.
In some cases, there may be overlap
between this list and risk factors
for Child abuse.
People with Child abuse may be more likely to

or the reverse may be true, or both.
Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply
coincidentally related to Child abuse
is not always clear.
