Two hundred and eighty-eight patients with different types of facial bone fractures were investigated and treated at two maxillofacial departments in Benghazi, Libya during the years 1977–1979. The results of the retrospective statistical analysis were different in some aspects from similar studies in other countries. 60.4 per cent of the fractures were caused by road traffic accidents, the mandibular body was the most frequently fractured area and 13.2 per cent were children under ten years of age.
Keywords: Fractures of the facial bones in the eastern region of Libya.
