Sixty cases of diffuse axonal injury were analysed in this paper. All cases were caused by traffic accident; the mortality was 53.12%. Clinical manifestations were post-traumatic immediate and continuous coma with severe dysfunction of brain stem. MRI is helpful for clinical diagnosis. Pathological findings include the diffuse axonal injury of cortical while matter, corpus callosum, brain stem, and focal hemorrhage and infarction. The early use of hyperbaric oxygen combined with neuro-growth factor as an effective therapy is recommended.
