Condylar hyperplasia is a rare pathology of the growth of the mandibular condylar cartilage leading to facial deformation. A bone scan demonstrates the active or inactive character of the condylar hyperplasia and helps guide therapeutic choices. There are two types of condylar hyperplasia, horizontal and vertical growth. Early condylectomy is the treatment of choice for active forms.
Key words: Unilateral condylar hyperplasia / Bone scan / Facial asymmetry / Condylectomy
