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. IRB approvals have been obtained and an Integrated Clinical Protocol has been developed. Operational procedures have been developed. Recruitment of subjects has not yet begun.
