Over a century ago, The French surgeon René Le Fort described the anatomical basis for fractures of the mid-face. His nomenclature is still used today using the eponym "Le Fort fractures." Although Le Fort's name is well known in association with the fractures that he described, little is known of his life. Therefore, the present article will discuss the background of this important individual in craniofacial trauma.
