Abstract: Aim: 1) The aim of this study was to study the relationship with mode of injury and radiological features of injury. 2) To study factor determining outcome in different subgroup in pediatric head injury. Material and Method: Prospective observational study done in JAH and GRMC Gwalior between August 2021 to July 2022 in 50 cases under 14 years of age. RESULTS Most common mode of injury was fall from height (56%) followed by Road traffic Accident(28%). Most cases had GCS in between 13-15(80%) at the time of presentation and most patient discharged with Kings Outcome Scale for Childhood Head Injury ( KOSCHI) of 5(84%). Conclusion: Initial GCS is the most common predictor of mortality. As age increases the incidence from fall from height increases and RTA increases. This study highlights need for focus on grading of severity of TBI rather than on factor like age ,mode of injury. Early referral to Neuro trauma centre and subsequent management should be considered to prevent ongoing physiological and pathological sequel.
