Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.


Minor head injury is a common occurrence in children of all ages; however, controversy exists regarding the management of these children.

Based on recent literature reports, strategies for the management of children with minor head trauma are presented.
