Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex heterogenous disease that may cause various psychiatric disorders, ranging from deficits in cognition, mood and behavior to clinical psychiatric disorders that cause impairment in social, occupational, and interpersonal functioning. Patients may develop typical mood and anxiety disorders, psychoses and changes in personality and cognition. The aim of this review is to analyse the clinical features of the main psychiatric disorders due to TBI. Further-more, attention has been focused on the causality relationship between TBI and clinical signs.
