Anthropological analysis of a young adult male from the mediaeval Stenjevec skeletal series revealed supernumerary teeth on both sides of the mandible, and an un-united subcondylar fracture of the mandible. The first condition is a developmental abnormality, while subcondylar fractures are one of the most frequent fractures of the mandible. Although, the osteological collection of the Department of Archaeology of the Croatian academy of Sciences and Arts consists of nearly 5,500 skeletons, this is the first documented case that exhibits these conditions in Croatian archaeological skeletal series.
