Can falling on your head when you were a baby cause problems further on in life?

In brief: Would be evident

Babies are quite resilient, and minor head trauma is common to most between the 1st and 2nd yr. Other head trauma would produce immediate symptoms, or problems such as seizures, learning problems etc that would be evident within a few years of school entry.
Trying to tag such a fall as the cause of a new problem in an adult is a bit of a stretch.
