Abstract: Introduction: Late-treated maxillofacial fractures can lead to complications and complex definitive care. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the management of a neglected unilateral corpus fracture and condyle fracture due to a motor accident. Case Report: A 20 years old female patient came to Hasan Sadikin General Hospital in Bandung complaining that her jaw could not open and close her mouth due to a fall from a height of 3 meters approximately 1.5 months earlier. The patient was not properly treated, so he was diagnosed with a neglected unilateral corpus fracture and condyle fracture. The treatment, in this case, was mandibular corpus fracture with open reduction, internal fixation, and condylectomy. Conclusion: Treatment of unilateral neglected corpus and condyle fractures with a refracturing and condylectomy approach can restore masticatory function with minimal defects.
