Head injuries in children
There are two categories of head injuries: those involving external injuries, generally concerning the scalp, and internal head injuries, which may involve the skull, the blood vessels inside the skull, or the brain. In most instances, falls resulting in a blow to the head only injure the scalp and are not life threatening. However, an internal head injury may be more severe because it can cause the brain to bleed or become bruised.
