DISCUSSION: To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to correlate the levels of endogenous NPY in supratentorial CSF with cognitive outcome in good-grade sSAH patients. Excessive NPY release into CSF may have a short-term influence on the pathogenesis of neuropsychological deficits. The impact of cerebrovascular manipulation on NPY release has to be further elucidated. ABBREVIATIONS: ANOVA: analysis of variance; aSAH: aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage; AUC: area under the curve; CBF: cerebral blood flow; CSF: cerebrospinal fluid; CT (scan): computed tomography (scan); CV: cerebral vasospasm; DIND: delaye...

We present a rare case of a 63-year-old male who developed pituitary apoplexy (PA) after sustaining a closed head injury from assault with a metal pole. The patient had a known pituitary tumor for which he had previously declined surgical resection. On initial CT scan, there was no traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage. There was sellar expansion but no obvious sellar hemorrhage. Within 48 hours of admission the patient was presumed septic after developing altered mental status, fevers, hypotension and tachycardia.

ConclusionsIt is important to recognize the possibility that thrombotic microangiopathy may occur after severe trauma. In the critical care setting, unexplained thrombocytopenia and hemolytic anemia should be investigated to eliminate the possibility of thrombotic microangiopathy. Early plasma exchange may help to prevent unfortunate outcomes in patients with thrombotic microangiopathy following trauma.

ConclusionsResults from this pilot study suggest that early cognitive alterations and structural brain lesions affect a considerable percentage of patients with post-concussion syndrome following mTBI.ResumenIntroducciónLos traumatismos craneoencefálicos leves (TCE-L) han sido tradicionalmente considerados acontecimientos sin repercusiones cerebrales significativas, cuya sintomatología remite espontáneamente en unos días. Sin embargo, estos hechos son cada vez más cuestionados. Este estudio pretende objetivar la existencia de alteraciones cognitivas precoces en una serie de pacient...
