RODRIGUEZ PINA, Carlos Alain  and  MIRANDA VILLASANA, José Ernesto. Glenoid fossa fracture: case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.3, pp.166-169. ISSN 1870-199X.

Emergency rooms have seen a gradual increase of patients afflicted by craniofacial fractures. Mandible fractures can be classified according to their anatomical location. The most frequent fractures are angle fractures (36.3%) and body of the mandible fractures (21.2%). Coronoid process fractures are uncommon (0.25%)1 Zygomatic arch, condylar or coronoid process fractures can mask a fracture of the glenoid fossa, since, clinically, there is restriction of mandibular movements. The case here presented is that of a 38 year patient afflicted with fractures of the maxillary-zygomatic complex, coronoid process as well as right glenoid fossa.

Keywords : Glenoid fracture; facial trauma; coronoid process.
