VA published a document in the Federal Register on September 23, 2008, at 73 FR 54693, revising the portion of the Rating Schedule regarding traumatic brain injury (TBI). In the Federal Register document, a period was left off the end of Note (4) of diagnostic code 8045 in 38 CFR 4.124a. Additionally, we provided updates to 38 CFR part 4, Appendices A and C to reflect the changes to the TBI rating criteria. An extra “4.124a” was erroneously added in Appendix A, and “Traumatic Brain Injury residuals” with diagnostic code 8045, was not added alphabetically. This document corrects those errors.Start List of Subjects
