An acquired brain injury (ABI) is the result of damage to the brain by injury or illness. A blow to the head, disease, infection, lack of oxygen, penetration of the skull, violent shaking (e.g., whiplash), and substance abuse can all cause an ABI.

The actual injury to the brain results when bruising, bleeding, swelling, fever, lack of blood/oxygen, shearing/tearing of cells, and/or increased pressure occurs.

​Acquired brain injury is a generic term referring to damage to the brain that occurs after birth and is not related to a congenital disorder, a developmental disability or degenerative disease. The term does not refer to brain injuries induced by birth trauma.
