Cerebral contusion is a form of traumatic brain injury, a bruise of the brain tissue.
Like bruises in other tissues, cerebral contusion can be caused by multiple microhemorrhages, small blood vessel leaks into brain tissue.
Head CT scans of unconscious patients reveal that 20% have hemorrhagic contusion.
