Fractures of the maxillofacial skeleton are very common which may not only lead to disfigurement of face, but are also a cause of neurosensory disturbances. Among various injuries, zygomatic complex fractures are next to nasal bone fractures; however, involvement of infraorbital nerve is almost a constant features which is manifested by neurosensory alteration in the areas supplied by this nerve. We performed a clinical study on isolated cases of zygomatic complex fractures and studied the correlation of infraorbital nerve injury to displacement and reduction of bone. The results of our study indicate that in most of the cases neurosensory recovery takes a time of 4 months after reduction. Early surgical intervention may speedup the process of neurosensory recovery.
