The combination of parasymphysis and condyle fracture is probably due to the horizontally directed impact to parasymphysis leading to its fracture; this axial force of impact against parasymphysis is trans- ferred to cranial base through the condyle resulting in condylar fracture due to concentration of tensile strain at the condylar neck.
