  Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a type of abuse that occurs between two people who are involved in a close relationship. Many times emotional abuse is the first sign followed by the others. This is a well-known phenomenon reported in psychology for abusive behaviour often leads to physical or sexual assaults.

  In this part (II) we present the variety of reasons concerning the appearance of IPV which in no case do they justify this brutal action. There are also several factors of IPV behind this brutal behavior. It is really important to stress that there is no excuse relating to the violent behavior of the abuser. Moreover, since the victims feel ready to share these abusive experiences with the authorities, the clinical doctors and dentists, it is a necessity for the doctor/dentist to be aware of all the indications leading to the conclusion that we have a case of IPV. Having a physical examination combined with the strange behavior of the suspected victim, one can find the truth behind the story of a potential accident and prevent any further brutal behavior connecting with the victim. In concluding it is important to examine cases of domestic violence, the victim’s profile, all the dangerous consequences relating to IPV as well as approaches to help dealing with this phenomenon.

  Elder abuse is commonly defined as a single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person. A lady 81 years old presented to the hospital with dento-alveolar fracture of the left maxilla. The associated bruising of the left facial region was of great importance. The home care provider gave confused details about the fall injury. The patient had affected communication skills due to dementia disease. The suspicion of fall associated to abuse generated from the different views between the two persons. The mental status of the patient occasionally may seriously complicate obtaining an accurate history of the trauma. Therefore, the identification of such a pathological condition is complicated having as a consequence many cases to remain with incorrect diagnosis. The proper management of a patient of this type of injury will be discussed. Abusive behaviour by family carers towards people with dementia is common with a third reporting important levels of abuse and half some abusive behaviour. The role of dentist by contacting the responsible authorities such as forensic (medical, dental and psychiatric or psychological), social and other implicated local societies by law should be emphasized. The dentists should be aware of this abnormal behaviour in order to prevent and assess properly any suspected abuse in elder women or men.
