ABSTRACT
Pediatric trauma involving the bones of the face is associated with severe injury and disability. Although much is known about the epidemiology of facial fractures in adults, little is known about injury patterns and outcomes in children. The most common facial fractures were mandible, nasal and maxillary/zygoma. The most common mechanisms of injury are motor vehicle collisions, violence and falls. These fracture patterns and mechanisms of injury varies with age. Cranial and central facial injuries are more common among toddlers and infants, and mandible injuries are more common among adolescents. Although bony craniofacial trauma is relatively uncommon among the pediatric population, it remains a substantial source of mortality, morbidity and hospital admissions. Continued efforts toward injury prevention are warranted. An overview of various types of fractures and their management modalities is discussed, with case reports.

F1c: Postoperative picture with normal upward gaze in both right and left eye

Mentions: A 10-year-old boy sustained periorbital injuries from road traffic accident (RTA), and had left orbital floor fracture. CT confirmed the fracture # and the left orbital floor was explored and repaired with titanium mesh via transconjunctival approach and his pre-operative problems of diplopia and restriction of gaze was resolved (Figs 1A to C).
