Objective: To trace the epidemiological profile of notified cases involving child victims of violence in a public hospital of Teresina from 2009 to 2011. Methods: Retrospective study from the data of violence against children registered in the Information System for Notifiable Diseases ( SINAN). Enrolled 366 individual chips notification involving children 0-9 years old. Results: It was found that most cases occur in children aged 1-3 years (56.3%) and males (58.5%). Regarding the type of violence was observed more frequently neglect / abandonment (76.5%), with 65.6% of cases occurring in the victim's residence and taking her mother as the main aggressor (45.1%). Children died in 2.2% of reported cases. Conclusion: that child abuse is prevalent in the family environment and thus becomes a much more complex problem because the family that should take care and enabling conditions for survival and quality of life is precisely the one that participates or co-participate in acts of violence against children.
