To assess the pattern of mandibular fractures in a known population.
Materials & methods: A total of 100 patients were enrolled. The number of male patients was 75 and 25 were female. Age of patients was 20 to 60 years. Mean age of patient was 40.45 years.

The data was analyzed and result was obtained using SPSS software. The level of significance was at P < 0.05.
Results: The mandibular condyle was the most common site of fracture in this study found in a vast majority of trauma patients (n = 42, 42.5%) involving 36 males and 6 females followed by the mandibular angle (20.6%), parasymphysis (12.5%) and dentoalveolar.
