The general practitioner has an important role in the acute management and during the rehabilitation process of children after a traumatic head injury. Latest research shows that sequelae may occur even after a mild head injury without loss of consciousness. Recognizing the warning signs and symptoms after a head injury allows the general practitioner to counsel the child and parents in secondary prevention, particularly in order to avoid any further head injury during the recovery phase. Under the supervision of the general practitioner, a gradual progressive return to the child's everyday activities optimizes the chances of a rapid and complete recovery.
