Summary
This work proposes that there is a diagnosable and treatable sub-type of Persistent Post-Concussive Syndrome (PPCS) following mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This sub-type of PPCS is characterized by: (a) multiple intermittent (or "partial seizure-like") symptoms in the absence of a conventional epileptic syndrome; (b) untriggered, ego-dystonic mood-swings in the absence of clear environmental precipitants; (c) memory lapses and brief gap of "lost time"; and a high prior probability of responding well to treatment with anti-convulsant mood-stabilizers, such as valproic acid (Depakote, Divalproex) and carbamazepine (Tegretol). Both pediatric and adults patients may suffer from this loosely-defined syndrome and may go untreated for months or even years following one or more instances of mild TBI. The authors and contributors, from diverse professional backgrounds, including adult neuropsychology, child neuropsychology, sports medicine, and neuropsychiatry, present insight into the needs and methods of treatment for this large and often underserved population. It provides all involved in client care with the tools they need to ensure good outcomes. Of particular value will be the coverage of the the mechanisms underlying blast induced neuro trauma, a subject of great concern to military personnel, care providers, and their families
