We present the clinical case of a 7-year-old girl who consulted for contagious impetigo and after a comprehensive biopsychosocial approach from the Pediatric consultation, she was diagnosed with negligent abuse in relation to an accumulation disorder in the mother. The longitudinal and comprehensive care performed by Primary Care pediatricians on the health of children and adolescents, monitoring family dynamics, is key in the early detection of many mental disorders of onset in the pediatric age, as well as situations of child abuse in all its variants.
