NITRINI, Ricardo. Soccer (Football Association) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy: A short review and recommendation. Dement. neuropsychol. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.3, pp.218-220. ISSN 1980-5764.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1980-57642016dn11-030002.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) was initially described in boxers, but in recent years it has been reported in other settings, particularly in contact sports and military personnel. Soccer (football association) had previously been (and still is) considered relatively safe when compared to other sports, such as American football. However, a few cases of professional soccer players with CTE have been reported in the last few years. It is still unknown how frequent this condition is in soccer players, and the role played by heading the ball remains elusive. Other traumas to the head, face and neck caused by contact with another player's head, arm or other body parts are among the most frequent in soccer. In spite of the lack of more in-depth knowledge, there is reasonable evidence for recommending severe punishment (red card and suspension for several matches) for players causing avoidable trauma to another player's head.

Palavras-chave : chronic traumatic encephalopathy; soccer; football; heading; head trauma.
