In brief: Bruise of the brain
Contusion means bruise.
There may be scattered bleeding or some surrounding swelling. This can be minor or very serious depending upon the extent and location of the contusion. All such patients should be hospitalized as the swelling may increase in the days after the injury and lead to serious problems.
