Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a very common occurrence in childhood, and can lead to devastating long term consequences. The authors report a fatal case of refractory DI, which developed in a patient with chronic subdural haematoma. Data were collected regarding mechanism and area of injury, severity of injury, and demographic factors to determine potential predictors of NF. Growth hormone and gonadotrophic hormones are the most common deficiencies seen after traumatic brain injury, but also the most likely to spontaneously recover. The time interval between TBI and pituitary function evaluation is one of the major factors responsible for variations in the prevalence of hypopituitarism reported. It includes the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal gland, thyroid, parathyroid gland, pancreas, adrenal glands, testes, and ovaries. Bullet pathways on CT scans were plotted and graphed onto a standardized magnetic resonance imaging scan.
In 10 subjects (5.8%), GH deficiency was diagnosed by strict criteria. We postulate that the hyperosmolar state of the patient was the major cause of his severe rhabdomyolysis. I suppose renal tubular acidosis could be present, especially with hypokalaemia, but not likely given the case vignette given. Electrolyte levels rose in response to high-dose supplementation. Growth hormone (GH) regulates the body’s growth and has long term effects on a person’s well being, bone development, and heart. Induced hypothermia is associated
