ABSTRACT
Condylar hyperplasia (CH) is a rare disorder characterized by excessive bone growth that almost always presents unilaterally, resulting in facial asymmetry. Classification of the different types of CH can differ depending on the authors. Correct diagnosis is critical in determining the proper treatments and timing. This paper is a review of the recent literature on the epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, classification, and surgical treatments of CH.

Mentions: Various methods are available for the diagnosis of CH. Correct diagnosis of CH is essential when deciding how to treat the condition. To prevent post-surgical reversion, accurate diagnosis of CH activity is also of upmost importance.12 Diagnostic methods such as clinical examination, radiographs, and nuclear imaging (Figure 1) can be used to determine the type of CH as well as its activity. Clinical diagnosis has been described as the diagnostic gold standard.13
