The tragedy of wars many people lost their lives and more injured and may became cripple. Missile war injuries is still a hot topic specially after Russian Ukrainian war started by invasion of Donbas region by Russian army claiming for liberation of Russian people. The war is very aggressive and destructive to infra structures with a lot of causality in both sides. Both sides were claimed losing thousands of soldiers and civilian beside injured people.

We felt sorry for humanity and peace loss, we did not expect such wars to occur in the 2022 century.

It is not only destructive to infra structures and insult to humanity but also might affect many countries by starvation, hungers and loss of oil and gas in Europa and other parts of the world by restriction of energy specially in poor countries. During the last 8 weeks of wars 6 million people became refuges.

In our studies we reported 241 patients were affected by missile war injuries including 195 men and 46 women, age ranged from 1 - 70 years (mean 35.5 years) and the deformities of Craniofacial region were classified, 95 patients had bone loss, 76 patients were suffered from soft tissue injuries, 33 patients were affected in the Cranio-Orbital-Facial injuries and 37 patients were suffered from other deformities of scar contracture, fistula and sinus formation. We would like to share our valuable experience in managements of missile war injuries with our colloquies in the globe.
