dc.description.abstract Background Muslims do not have a monopoly on morality. The notion that child abuse and neglect are rare in Arab & Muslim countries is a myth that can no longer withstand the strength of the evidence; this indefensible denial is unacceptable. Many recent reports document child abuse in the Gulf countries; reports began to surface in the 1980s and early 1990s. The overall rate of reporting has been steadily increasing over the years, peaking in 2009! It is understood that child abuse& sexual abuse in particular is a very sensitive topic, not only in Saudi Arabia and the gulf state but all over the world. That might explain why only few published review or research has been conducted in this taboo area. In fact, in Saudi Arabia, we have a tiny idea of the extent of child sexual abuse, its causes or consequences. Method We reviewed all published material concerning Child sexual abuse in Saudi Arabia and near area prior to June 2015 in pub med search and other search site in English language to have an approximate estimate of the prevalence & to try to correlate the different prevalence rate found in different study taking into account the type of study; difficulties in definition of a case and the statistical method used. en_US
