Resumo: Concussion is a public health crisis affecting vulnerable populations including youth athletes. As awareness increases, more patients with acute concussion are seeking medical evaluations. Internists are frontline medical providers and thus should be able to identify, diagnose, manage, and know when to refer patients with concussion. Management of concussion includes rapid removal from play, symptomatic treatment, and return to learn/play recommendations. Inappropriate management may lead to recurrent concussions, prolonged recovery, and potential long-term consequences. Understanding the key features of diagnosis, postinjury assessment tools, symptomatic treatment, and management of concussion, including return to learn/play recommendations, is essential for primary care providers.
