Misdiagnosis of Head trauma

Head trauma: Related Misdiagnoses

Dementia to be spotted early on: Dementia is an important diagnosis to consider in the elderly. A vigorous search for a possible cause of dementia is warranted since there are significant numbers of reversible conditions. It is important to exclude the psychiatric conditions that may mimic dementia. Some of the common conditions which have to be kept in mind so as to avoid misdiagnosis include delirium, depression, head trauma, cerebrovascular accidents, drugs and schizophrenia. Treatment is aimed at controlling the psychotic symptoms or disturbed behaviour.
