The control of Maxillo-facial traumas in the region of MARRAKECH TENSIFT AL HAOUZ can be done by putting the mapping of these traumas in perspective, thus allowing a concise and effective representation of the traumatisms on a geographical space by the determination of the social profile of the victim of the maxillofacial trauma and to determine the main places of occurrence of these traumas and their characteristics in order to help the rapid and relevant understanding of the problem. A prospective study data collection, conducted from January to June 2015, described the epidemiological, geographical and socio-economic parameters of 418 patients that were admitted for maxillofacial trauma. The victims were predominantly male (77.27%), 37.79% were unemployed. The main mechanism of trauma was road accident (44.7%). The geographical distribution of the traumatized victims was majority of the patients coming from the surroundings of the city of Marrakech (rural area). For origins of patients, the first position was the surroundings of Marrakech or the district of the Medina, which are plagued by poverty and unemployment.
