Abstract

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children is a major health hazard in the United States. In children less than 15 years of age, half of all mortality is due to trauma-related injuries. The cost to society and the family is great because of the consequences of head injury in children. Of surviving children, the morbidity ranges from mild physical and learning deficits to persistent vegetative state.
