Review: Managing posttraumatic stress disorder in combat veterans with comorbid traumatic brain injury

Bruce Capehart, MD, MBA; Dale Bass, PhD

When a patient has been diagnosed with both posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), the best care occurs when the treatment team understands both conditions. This understanding should include the shared clinical symptoms of PTSD and TBI and an understanding of how treatment for one condition can affect the other. This review considers treatment recommendations from the Department of Veterans Affairs/Department of Defense clinical practice guidelines for PTSD from the perspective of simultaneously managing comorbid TBI.
