Cranial defects occur most frequently during wartime, but their incidence during peace time, as a result of accident or disease makes knowledge of cranioplasty useful to the interested practitioner. Trauma accounts for most of the cranial defects. Nume'- ous materials have been historically employed for the restoration of cranial defects. Heat-polymerized methyl methacrylai= alloplastic cranial implant requires presurgical fabrication of the implants. lt facilitates the reproduction of the contours, an: the tissue bed is not exposed to the heat of polymerization or to the free monomer. ln this study, a case report has been presented in which heatcured acrylic resin alloplastic implant has been fabricated for a patient with left frontal bone defect.
