This paper reviews the strengths and limitations of the DSM-IV in the diagnosis of children with Traumatic Brain Injury. The authors compare the DSM-IV diagnostic characteristics for effective classification and decision making in children with TBI. The DSM IV multiaxial approach can be useful in patients with brain injury because medical considerations can be incorporated with the diagnosis, along with standard mental health factors.
