Can a Childhood Head Injury Cause the BPD?

Bookmark and Share


My daughter has been diagnosed with BPD. When she was 8 wks old, she slid out of her pram and fell flat on the ground hitting the back of her head. Could this fall contribute to BPD?


It's unlikely but possible. Head injuries are common in those with the BPD, although there are usually additional factors and/or multiple head injuries. Untreated or undertreated ADHD is a common cause of the BPD.
