Pituitary deficiencies have been reported after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may contribute to lasting cognitive disorders in this context. TBI patients with
cognitive sequelae must undergo pituitary screening because growth hormone, corticotropin, and thyrotropin deficits are particularly common and can adversely affect ADL and reduce QoL. Activities of daily living; cognitive disorders; pituitary deficiency; sequelae; traumatic brain injury
