Few studies have examined clinical correlates of aggression after first-time
traumatic brain injury (TBI) within the first year after injury. The authors
aimed to identify the rates of aggression at 6 and 12 months post-TBI and
establish clinical and demographic correlates. A total of 103 subjects with
first-time TBI were seen within 12 months postinjury and evaluated for
aggression. Post-TBI social functioning and new-onset depression (within 3 months
of the TBI) may serve as particularly important predictors for aggression within
the first year of TBI, as these factors may afford intervention and subsequent
decreased risk of aggression.
