Title:  Unilateral condylar hyperplasia: diagnosis, clinical aspects and operative treatment. A case report

Abstract:  Background Condylar hyperplasia of the mandible is an uncommon idiopathic disorder of the jaw characterised by increased volume of the condyle, unilaterally or bilaterally, leading to facial asymmetry, mandibular deviation, malocclusion and articular dysfunction. Case Report The authors present one case of unilateral condylar hyperplasia of a 16-year-old patient affected by severe facial asymmetry. Conventional X-rays examinations, multislice spiral CT and bone SPECT were used for the final diagnosis of primary condyle hyperplasia. The patient was treated with a combined orthodontic and surgical approach. Conclusion Treatment of condylar hyperplasia with a combined orthodontic and surgical approach including condylectomy yield good aesthetic and functional outcomes.
