Rights and Permissions

Mandibular fractures in children are rare due to thick adipose tissue, resiliency of bone and protective and care taking nature of the parents. These fractures carry different etiology and treatment considerations with them when compared with similar types of injuries in adults. Furthermore, the associated complications may have long lasting effect on the growth and development of the child's face and developing teeth. The purpose of this case report is to highlight the occurrence of mandibular fracture in 7-year-old caused by horse-kick and its subsequent management by open cap-splint with circum-mandibular wiring.
