          Objective To investigate the current situation and related factors of facial trauma in school-age children in urban areas of Fuyang, and to provide basis for child facial trauma prevention.

          Methods By cluster stratified random sampling method, a questionnaire survey was conducted among parents of school-age children aged 3–6 in four kindergartens in Fuyang City. A total of 1 062 valid questionnaires were included.

          Results A total of 146 (13.7%) children with facial trauma were included. The ratio of boys to girls was 1.84:1. In primary and secondary classes in kindergarten, the reporting rate of boys (24.5%, 16.4%) was higher than that of girls (13.4%, 9.0%), and the difference was statistically significant (χ 2=6.66, 4.25, P<0.05). The incidence of facial trauma was highest (19.4%) in junior kindergarten class children, which decreased with age. Falls injury (61.6%) was the leading cause of facial trauma. Most of facial trauma occurred in family (55.5%) and kindergarten (26.0%). Forehead (26.0%) and mandible (21.2%) were the main injured body sites. Skin laceration (81.5%) was the main type of injury. Facial trauma mostly occurred at 11:00–13:00 (19.9%) and 17:00–19:00 (27.4%), during June to August (39.7%). The results of univariate analysis showed that the facial trauma of preschool children was associated with gender, class, parent-rated child temperament, parental education and family type (χ 2=14.51, 18.84, 39.66, 6.56, 12.31, P<0.05).

          Conclusion Facial trauma in preschool children in Fuyang is common, which varies in gender, class, temperament and family type.
