Mandibular condyle fracture from trauma is extremely common but not dislocation. Among the four types of dislocation, anterior, posterior, superior and lateral, the lateral dislocation is rarest. The subtype of lateral dislocation-superolateral dislocation is extremely uncommon with only 16 cases being reported in literature. In this article we report an unusual case of superolateral dislocation of intact mandibular condyle of right side into the temporal fossa, lateral dislocation of left condyle associated with left parasymphysis fracture. The literature is reviewed and the mechanics behind this clinical presentation is discussed.
