Abstract

Aim Allopregnanolone (AP) is a steroid of progesterone origin and it can readily pass through the blood-brain barrier. The aim of this study was to determine the AP levels occurring after head trauma in children and adults and to compare these results to the findings observed in the computed tomography (CT) of the respective individuals.
