Fractures of the mandibular coronoid process are extremely rare. However, fracture of coronoid process without the fracture of zygomatic arch is further rare. We report an unusual case of bilateral fracture of both condyle and coronoid process without fracture of overlying zygomatic arch on both side and its conservative management. Bilateral coronoid process of mandible without zygomatic arch fracture is extremely rare and can be successfully managed conservative position of mandible during trauma and forces acting on coronoid process by temporalis muscle are key factors in fracture of coronoid process without fracture of zygomatic arch and acrylic blocks to maintain vertical dimension are key to manage such cases.
