Aims and objective: To study the incidences, etiological factors and clinical presentation and neurologically assessment of severe head injuries patient. Material and Methods: A prospective study was carried out on the admitted patients of head injury and was followed up to 6 months after discharge. Results: Males are more prone for head injury with more frequent in (54.6%) in 20-40 years age group mainly due to road traffic accident. Among road traffic accidents two wheeler accident (56.2%) was the predominant mode of trauma in head injury patients and most of the patients were not wearing helmets (82.2%). CSF otorrhoea (20.1%) was more common than CSF rhinorrhoea (8.4%). History of unconsciousness (62.2%) was the most clinical finding in patient followed by vomiting (37.8%), ENT bleed (26.1%) and convulsions (8.4%). Incidence of GCS 3-8 was seen in 26.9 cases and between 9-12 was seen in 27.7% cases, whereas 13-15 score was seen in 45.4% cases. Mortality & morbidity in head injury patients has inverse relationship with GCS score. Conclusion: Head injuries are more common in Males of 20-40 years age group with road traffic accident as the predominant mode of trauma.
