|Abstract:||To the authors’ knowledge, avascular necrosis of the midface secondary to disseminated intravascular coagulation has yet to be described following a hypoxic syncopal episode secondary to ‘heat stroke’. A slow, progressive loss of anterior maxillary bone and the collapse of the nasal dorsum in a healthy young man with no other known medical co-morbidities led to the diagnosis. Following debridement, a staged reconstruction of the maxilla–nasal complex was successfully performed.|
