Four days after a mild traumatic head injury 3 patients were examined comparatively by magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) and cranial computed tomography (CCT). All patients suffered from short-term unconsciousness and amnesia and besides anosmia no neurological deficits appeared. Evidently, non-haemorrhagic contusional lesions and subdural haematomas can develop even after a mild traumatic head injury without being visible by CCT. Especially lesions in the basal brain regions prove difficult for demonstration. These cases indicate that the posttraumatic disturbance of consciousness is not a reliable indicator for the severity of traumatic brain lesions and that even a mild course can lead to substantial brain damage.
