Traumatic isolated frontonasal injuries are seldom reported in literature as they are generally seen along with panfacial, high velocity accidents. A peculiar case, in which the patient reported with an isolated frontonasal injury due to a freak accident involving a hoe is presented here. After surgical intervention, titanium plates were used to fix the frontal bone. The sinus lining was preserved and the nasal bone was reduced and immobilized. The patient was discharged and kept on a weekly follow up.
