A male asked:

What do you do for mastoiditis caused by head trauma ?

Dr. Jonathan Owens
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 36 years experience
Consult an ENT dr: Often, people will have fluid in the mastoid on imaging studies performed after head trauma. This may or may not mean that mastoiditis is present. It may be blood pooled in the mastoid, spinal fluid leaking, or excess mucous pooling in the mastoid. Each cause is managed differently. It would be prudent to be evaluated by an ears, nose, and throat physician.

Psychiatry 44 years experience
Yes, it can: Head trauma can cause a host of problems both immediately and long-term. Some injuries are more obvious -- like skull fractures, gunshot wounds, etc. Others, like closed head injuries or concussions, are less obvious but suffering is still present. One needs a good neurologist and neuropsychiatrist to help with such situations. Medications can be tricky, and behavioral management's needed too.

A 27-year-old male asked:

Can head trauma (not severe) cause a stroke?

Dr. Elden Rand
Cardiology 23 years experience
Yes, it is possible: Possibly a trauma caused a blood vessel in the head to tear. This can result in closing the vessel, causing a stroke. The process is called a dissection. Also, a bleed in the head (like a subdural hematoma) can cause symptoms that look like a stroke. These are all quite serious and need to be evaluated by a physician. You may need an mra to sort this out.
