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.

Figure 2: Clinical characteristics showing facial and occlusal deviation to the non-affected side.

Mentions: Temporomandibular joint CH has been described as a rare unilateral growth of the mandibular condyle. This growth causes both functional and esthetic problems, which often manifest as facial asymmetry, occlusal interferences (Figure 2), and joint dysfunction that can lead to pain.1 Excessive growth can occur in several different locations in the mandible. The growth can be the result of an enlarged condyle, an elongated condylar neck, or outward bowing or downward growth of the body and ramus.17 Due to the variations in locations of excessive growth, multiple classification systems have been developed to better characterize the pathology.
