The relationship between maxillofacial trauma and alcohol abuse has been well documented. The onset of acute alcohol withdrawal following the injury can seriously complicate and compromise the treatment of the maxillofacial injuries as be potentially lethal for the patient. A clear understanding of the biochemistry, development, signs and symptoms, and management of acute alcohol withdrawal is necessary for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
