Conclusions:

Evaluations of the closed head injuries of transient kind are therefore areas for fertile research as what was previously regarded as irrelevant are now realized to be significant. Many patients with CHITs have not been regarded as ill when, in actuality, they were so impaired that their day to day functioning was that interfered with. Only by detailed, time-based, cross-sectional evaluations can one develop enough longitudinal perspective to be able to manage the patient appropriately and to appreciate better their strengths and their limitations. Certain pointers on management are dealt with in a later chapter (Neppe, Goodwin, 1998 in press).
