We describe what is to our knowledge that anteromedial fracture dislocation of the mandibular condyle is common, but a superolateral dislocation of the mandibular condyle is quite rare, this type of dislocation is often misdiagnosed or completely overlooked and hence inadequately addressed. We report a case of a 35-year-old male patient in which there was a sagittal fracture of the right condyle and the lateral fragment was hooked on the zygomatic arch with contralateral superolateral dislocation of the left condyle and right parasymphysis fracture following a road traffic accident. The present report exhibits an atypical case and highlights its management.
