A patient with bony exostosis in the infratemporal fossa, following a fracture of the zygomaticomaxillary complex, is described. The patient had severe limitation of mandibular movement. Preoperative radiographs showed a mass in the anterior part of the infratemporal fossa. An extended temporal incision was made, and the mass was surgically extirpated. This rare complication following a fracture in this area was the result of failure to diagnose the fracture at the time of injury and of the consequent absence of proper treatment.
