Injuries produced by bull goring in our country are very frequent in most Ibero-American region where bullfighting shows makes these wounds more common. Such wounds maybe presented in the rural area, where these animal are used in load or drag activities, and not in bullfights. Traumatisms in the maxillofacial area are less common, being the pelvic members most affected. We present a case of a 76 year old male patient, with a bull goring penetrating injury in the right cervicofacial region, during agriculture activities. An open reduction was performed with plates and screws. Intra oral approach was combined to reduce and fix zygomatic fracture to properly align the bone fractures and suturing soft tissue injure finally.
