ABSTRACT

The lesions at the maxillofacial level that are related to accidents produced by animals are very unusual. Epidemiologic studies very seldom refer to the prevalence, management, and complications of lesions caused by animals. The prevalence of these lesions is related to cultural factors: cause and incidence differ from country to country, and even from one region to another in the same country. Horse kick presents a lethal power that is able to release strength of one ton and transmit over 10,000 Newtons to the human body, thus generating craniofacial fractures and other kind of fractures in other bones of the human body. As follows, we present a case of mandibular fracture due to a horse kick.


Key words: Maxillofacial, lesions, animals, kick, horse.
