Surgeons are always in a dilemma for the management of paediatric facial fractures due to distinctive nature of growing facial skeleton. The ultimate treatment goal for paediatric fractures should be as conservative as possible with least invasive surgical approach that will access the fracture and least invasive surgical fixation that will allow stable reduction and will prevent any growth disturbances. We are presenting a case of 4- year old with panfacial fracture managed according to this principle using transmucosal titanium plates with acylic splint for sagittal split of palate.
