Abstract


Frontal bone fracture is a common facial bone fracture which commonly involved the outer table part. Most of the time outer table fracture is treated conservatively. However, when there is involvement of orbital wall fracture, as well as entrapment of extraocular muscle, surgical intervention via open reduction and internal fixation is needed. We described a case of outer table frontal bone fracture with left orbital roof fracture complicated with superior rectus muscle entrapment which was successfully treated via open reduction and internal fixation.
