Show Summary Details


A 15-year-old boy is referred from the emergency department. He fell off his bicycle during his paper round and landed on the right side of his head in a pile of bricks by the side of the road. He was found to be ‘dazed’ by some passers-by who called an ambulance. By the time he was formally assessed he was alert and very slightly confused, but this has since improved in the department and he is orientated and has no focal deficit. He has a graze to his right temporal region which is swollen and very tender.
