In brief: Worst case: death

Shaken baby syndrome causes brain injury; therefore, brain damage is the consequence -- developmental delays, school difficulties.
But because it is a form of child abuse there are many other consequences -- bonding problems, emotional problems, fear, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.
