Abstract

In 25 head injury patients, the following hormone GH, prolactin, LH, FSH, TSH, T3, T4 and cortisol were measured by radioimmunological methods in plasma. This study has revealed that coma patients following severe head injury are no functional impairment of the hypothalamus-hypophyseal system including LH, FSH, TSH while GH, prolactin, T3 and T4 are decreased. According the recovery of neurologic conditions, above mentioned decreased hormonal levels are progressively increased as the normal level. It is suggested that traumatic coma patient should be investigated for about the change of the neuroendoclinologic conditions.
