ABSTRACT Introduction: maxillofacial fractures require accurate diagnosis, precise and timely. The variability of treatment will depend on the patient's age, type of fracture and associated complications. Objective: To determine the clinical characteristics of maxillofacial fractures. Methods: retrospective observational design conducted in patients who were treated at the National Hospital (Itauguá) during the years 2007 to 2011. We took in account the etiology, age, gender and type of fracture. Results: 195 cases were admitted to the study of patients admitted for maxillofacial trauma. The most frequent cause (57.44%) corresponded to motorcycle accidents. Predominance of male gender (90%). The most prevalent age range was between 20-40 years (69%). Orbital zygomatic complex fracture ranked first (46%). The year 2009 was the busiest for facial trauma patients (29%). Conclusion: maxillofacial fractures predominated mostly in middle-aged males, were mainly caused by motorcycle accidents and affected above all the zygomatic complex.
