Aim and Objective: To determine the prevalence of paediatric craniofacial fractures in Libya and India

Material and Methods: Traumatized patients reported to the emergency or casualty department of hospitals in respected demographic areas of country. In between 2017 and 2019 were selected for this study. The hospital records of patients were retrospectively analysed for age, gender, etiology of trauma, distribution of bone fracture in facial structure and among maxilla and mandible with the treatment procedures patients underwent in different age groups.

Result: 317 and 371 traumatic patients were analysed for paediatric craniofacial trauma in Libya and India hospitals respectively. The commonly affected age group were found to be 13-16years, with RTA being the most common etiology leading to mandible fracture with dentoalveolar and Lefors II fracture in majority of cases. The frequent treatment option found to be either conservative management or ORIF according to age groups.

Conclusion: The facial injury pattern is influenced by growth and age of patient. A retrospective study on the prevalence is important to know about the common cause of trauma as well as most prone bony structure to be fractured in associate age group. Such studies and data boost the campaigning on prevention and increasing awareness of facial fractures as well.
