Head injury is a trauma to the head, which may or may not include injury to the brain.
Head injuries can be closed or open. A closed head injury is one in which the skull is not broken. A penetrating head injury occurs when an object pierces the skull. A head injury may cause a skull fracture, which may or may not be associated with injury to the brain. Brain injuries may occur over a wide or small area.
