Aquired Brain Injury (ABI)

A A Print-Friendly Page
An acquired brain injury (ABI) is brain damage caused by events after birth, rather than as part of a genetic or congenital disorder. It usually affects cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and/or independent functioning, and can result from either a physical trauma to the head (e.g., accidents, falls, assaults etc.) or a non-traumatic injury derived from either an internal or external source (e.g., stroke, brain tumors, infection, poisoning, hypoxia, ischemia, encephalopathy or substance abuse). Most definitions of ABI exclude neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., Alzheimer's, Parkinson's).
