Abstract The purpose of this project is to identify the incidence of post traumatic hypopituitarism (PTH) in mild TBI and develop criteria for assessing which patients with a mild TBI are at risk for developing PTH. This study will also correlate the characteristics of the individuals with PTH by neuropsychological, neurophysiological and imaging testing as they relate to functional outcome. At 6 months post injury, patients will be screened for anterior pituitary function 121 subjects have been recruited as of July 15, 2012; 96 subjects, of which 45 are mTBI, have reached the 6 month point, where data collection (i.e. blood samples) for this project occurs. 20 subjects were found to have hypopituitarism. Further details are in the body of this report.
