An asymmetric variation of facial structures is commonly seen in the general population. Hemimandibular hyperplasia is a gross asymmetry of facial structures characterized by unilateral enlargement of hard and soft tissues. The etiology of Hemimandibular hyperplasia remains unknown, however abnormalities involving the hormones, neural system, vascular, lymphatic & mechanical influences have been proposed. The condition does not warrant any active intervention except for cosmetic reasons.
A case of 22 year old male showing characteristic features of hemimandibular hyperplasia is reported with an insight on differential diagnosis. The case is presented to supplement existing clinical knowledge.
