Psychiatric disorders, including psychosis, have long been associated with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Similarly, TBI has been associated with chronic headache, seizures, cognitive dysfunction, and sleep disturbance. Previous reports have suggested that the prevalence of subsequent impairments can be greater than 20% of those with TBI. The patient had no psychiatric or chronic neurologic conditions prior to sustaining his head injury. He had no known family history of psychiatric illness or migraine. Following the fall, he soon developed regular intermittent headaches and sensory deficits, including loss of smell and taste, and blurred vision at times. The headaches were bi-temporal with steady pain lasting several hours to a day in duration. At times, he experienced aura with visual changes preceding headache onset.
