Abstract

Mild traumatic brain injury is defined as isolated head injury producing a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 13 or
greater and occurs in the context of sports, recreational activities and vehicle accidents. These patients are usually
asymptomatic on presentation. Most patients recover quickly, with a predictable clinical course of recovery within the
first one to two weeks following traumatic brain injury. 5%-20% of the patient’s physical, cognitive or behavioral post
concussive symptoms may be persistent. Radiological investigations including computer tomography scans should be
obtained and magnetic resonance imaging can be very valuable in patients who have sustained mild traumatic brain
injury. If there are any concerns about the safety of the discharged patient with mild injury, a brief inpatient observation
period of 12 to 24 hours is advisable. Careful neurologic examination must be made to determine the presence of
delayed complications if the patient returns for second time. Far from diagnosis and observation of symptoms, we will
review the differential diagnosis studies, imaging options, cognitive-behavioral findings and molecular trials for mild
traumatic brain injury.
