Abstract

The mandibular fractures in pediatric patients are rare, and they can need a fast and safe treatment. We present a case of a pediatric patient with “Andy Gump” fracture, resulting in a retrognathic mandible, distress to breathe, and functional discomfort to the patient caused by a cycling accident. The treatment was successful with the fast release of airway path and use of titanium plates to fix the fracture.
