Summary

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common neurological disorder. In the context of diffuse or traumatic axonal injury (DAI/TAI), increased attention has been given to the neuroradiological finding of microbleeds in patients with TBI. The traumatic microbleeds (TMBs) are typically localized in the white matter of the frontal lobes, particularly of superior frontal gyrus and corpus callosum, and at the gray matter-white matter interface of the frontal and temporal lobes. The fact that TMBs can also be caused by mild or minor TBI could also be of some importance for the interpretation of the results from larger epidemiological studies and studies on microbleeds in association with specific non-traumatic disorders. With the increasing availability of appropriate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences and methods, increased attention has been given to the radiological finding of microbleeds in relation to brain trauma in recent years.
