  Concussion present with many symptoms but the most common is headache. Other symptoms include dizziness, nausea, imbalance or vertigo, fatigue or drowsiness, sensitivity to light and noise, amnesia (which is a typical feature), abnormal behavior and seizure. At old age, the human skull has an increased space as the brain begin to shrink just like the other body tissues which experience the same physical changes due to ageing. Subdural hematoma, easily occur in the aged brain vessels following an accident and could be worsened when patient is on anti-inflammatory drugs. In this study, we critically review the current knowledge of concussion in the older populations.
