Poss. but uncommon: Psychosis following head trauma (pdtbi) most patients with pdtbi reported in the literaturefit a similar profile t in that they are male, relatively young at the time of injury, suffer a severe head injury with loss of consciousness, have a several year latency to the first signs of psychosis, and typically present with auditory hallucinations. I hope this helps. Be well.
