Oral squamous cell carcinoma often invades the mandible. However, the incidence of pathological fractures of the maxillofacial bones is low and their treatment is rarely satisfactory. A patient, too weak to undergo surgery, affected by squamous cell carcinoma of the mandibular region with bone involvement and pathological fracture of the mandible, underwent chemotherapy with carboplatin associated with diphosphonate.
