Results: We found 98 articles, 40 were excluded due to their titles, 8 were excluded after screening the abstracts and the titles, 50 fulltext articles were screened for content and relevance for this study, 17 articles were excluded after reading the fulltext articles, 33 articles have been included in this study. Conclusion: Sexuality is a neglected area in rehabilitation after TBI, and there is a need for training of the nursing staff in this area.
