abstract

  • Traumatic mandibular condyle dislocations into the middle cranial fossa are rare. Thirty-three cases of middle cranial fossa injuries caused by condylar dislocations have been reported in the literature. A case report of a patient with a traumatic dislocated condyle into the middle cranial fossa, which was treated conservatively, is presented.
