Abstract

The clinical nature of sport-related concussion is discussed in this paper. Particularly highlighted are the difficulties with definition, injury severity grading, classification, and understanding of clinical symptoms. In addition, the well-recognized sequelae of concussion including the motor and convulsive manifestations are discussed in detail. Where possible, an evidence-based approach is adopted to assist the understanding of the literature in this complex area.
