Confirmed Cases of CTE: People Diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic EncephalopathyChronic Traumatic Encephalopathy News & Information

Unfortunately chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) at this time can only be diagnosed after death. Below is a list of confirmed cases of CTE and the breakdown by sport. It should be noted that this is a small list compared to doctors understanding of the problem of CTE and the many undiagnosed cases. Through the work of the Center of the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy researchers have been successful in securing donations of professional athletes brains after death for further study so researchers can better understand CTE and how to better prevent it. Many on this list were identified this way.

Football (19)


College Football

High School Football

Professional Wrestling (2)

Hockey (4)

Boxing (16)

This list is by no means complete and accurate to the best of our knowledge. If you know of another confirmed case of CTE or any inaccuracies please let us know at so we can keep the list as current as possible.
