Background: Head traumas are serious problems among neurosurgical emergencies. In this study, we aimed to contribute to the epidemiological studies in our country. Material and Method: In this study, 1872 cases consulted in the emergency service of Suleyman Demirel University Medical School between January-2006 and January-2012 were evaluated retrospectively for ages, gender, etiology, arrival Glasgow Coma Score(GCS), modalite, complications, duration of stay in the hospital, and Glasgow Outcome Score(GOS). Results: In the result, it is found that the mean age of the cases was 28, and most of them were male (67%). Traffic accidents (48%) were the most seen etiological cause. The ratio of the cases with arrival GCS 8 or higher was 95%. Hospitalized patients were 36%, and most of the cases (414 cases-62%) were hospitalized in the neurosurgery clinic. The ratio of the operated patients was 23%. The surgical intervention was administered mostly for epidural hematomas (33%), and descenting fractures (33%). Conclusion: In general, traffic accidents with mild head injuries consist most of the head traumas, also most of the mortal accidents are caused by traffic accidents. It is seen that the cautions should be increased, training and illumination of society is still not maintained
