Mild brain injury is one of the most common neurological a neurotraumatological diagnoses. The pathophysiological
basis of mild brain injury is frequently a diffuse axonal damage of variable degree. In the acute phase of mild brain
injury we have to identify 1% of patients who will undergo neurosurgery because of vital need. The analysis of
patient’s personal history, screening of risk factors, neuropsychological testing and imaging methods (CT, MRI) are
irreplaceable in the diagnostic process of mild brain injury. Though the mild brain injury is currently considered as
an irrelevant traumatic event, approximately 10% of patients develop the so-called post-concussion syndrome.
