UNILATERAL CONDYLAR HYPERPLASIA CASE REPORT Mandibular condylar hyperplasia is a complex deformity of condyle that leads to facial asymmetry.

. Unilateral condylar hyperactivity is a unilateral condition of condylar head of mandible. Its etiology is unknown, but there is a consensus that the growth in one of the condyles in adults may be accelerated, or that the growth may be prolonged by persistent activity of the condyle after the end of general skeletal growth; however, there are additional factors such as hormonal influences, hypervascularity, heredity, infection, or trauma. This condition equally affects both genders and results in facial asymmetry and occlusal disturbances. Radiological and scintigraphic methods are commonly used for diagnosis and monitoring of its macroscopic aspects. Treatment to correct skeletal deformity in patients with hemimandibular hyperplasia differ, particularly about the age at which the operation is done and the operation itself. This poster highlights about the case of unilateral condylar hyperplasia treated successfully with high condylectomy and mandibuloplasty. Key words- Unilateral condylar hyperplasia, High condylectomy, Mandibuloplasty.
