Il paziente e' caduto da uno scivolo e in anamnesi appare il seguente:

concussion
Explanation:
TCC = trauma cranico concussivo

I have seen the terms "concussive head injury" and "traumatic brain injury" used, however I think you can safely use "concussion" in your text.

"Concussion is the historical term representing low velocity injuries that cause brain ‘shaking’ resulting in clinical symptoms and that are not necessarily related to a pathological injury. Concussion is a subset of TBI and will be the term used in this document. It was also noted that the term commotio cerebri is often used in European and other countries. Minor revisions were made to the definition of concussion, which is defined as follows: Concussion is a brain injury and is defined as a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain, induced by biomechanical forces. "

"La gestione del trauma cranico concussivo negli atleti dovrà quindi prevedere una valutazione medico-specialistica attenta sia nell’immediato che a distanza di giorni dall’accaduto, che preveda sia indagini cliniche che strumentali multidisciplinari. La risposta di vista ed esami deve essere alla base della decisione di una ripresa piena dell’attività agonistica per non far correre rischi allo sportivo. «La concussione – spiega il professor Carmelo Anile - è un’alterazione dello stato di veglia; può esserci un trauma concussivo con o senza perdita della consapevolezza psicologica di sé e dell’ambiente circostante».
