Delayed Neurobehavioral Sequelae of Traumatic Brain Injury

  • C. Thomas Gualtieri

Abstract

Head injury and its natural sequelae are not necessarily the worst thing, or to put it another way, they are not the only worst thing. New problems develop in people who have had traumatic brain injuries (TBI), sometimes many years down the road. These are clinical problems that can be as debilitating as any consequence of the injury itself, but they may arise after a year, or after several years, or after many years. They are usually insidious in onset, in contrast to the catastrophic arrival of neurological deficit following TBI, so they may be overlooked and thus go untreated.
