Brain Contusion


An injury (bruise) to the brain; usually occurs in the setting of a head injury, but can occur after other kinds of trauma. Contusions sometimes lead to focal neurologic deficit. They can be single or multiple. If the bruise enlarges, a focal hemorrhage can lead to a decline of the patient and require surgical removal.
