Minor head injury is a common occurrence in children of all ages; however, controversy exists regarding the management of these children. Reports of neurologically intact children with intracranial injuries have caused many to recommend cautious management, while the infrequency of serious intracanial injuries after minor head trauma have prompted others to be less conservative. Based on recent literature reports, strategies for the management of children with minor head trauma are presented.
