Abstract

We present the case of a 53-year-old man who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. A maxillofacial computed tomography scan revealed a large tumor of the left maxilla as well as multiple facial fractures. The tumor extended from the palate to the orbital floor and from the medial to the lateral wall of the maxillary sinus. We describe the surgical approach as well as the operative management of incidental fibrous dysplasia of the maxilla in a patient with facial fractures.
