Abstract

The pathological fracture of the mandible is a rare and undesirable consequence of cancerous bone invasion. This study investigates the retrospective incidence of this phenomenon in diagnosed cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the mandibular region, and reviews the methods of treatment used. A total of 194 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the mandibular region were observed. Only six cases of pathological fractures were found. The treatment was conditioned by the need to eliminate the tumor, and was carried out in different methods according to the individual cases. This study underlines the importance of both knowing various techniques and collaborating with other specialists in treating the fracture.
