A cerebral contusion is a bruise to the brain tissue. Unlike most bruises, a cerebral contusion is a serious injury requiring immediate medical attention as it can cause swelling in the brain and high intracranial pressure. However, most cerebral contusions heal themselves without further medical intervention.Cerebral contusion at Wikipedia
