Condylar Hypoplasia Type 2

Condylar Hypoplasia Type 2 is a condition characterized by the unilateral overgrowth of a part of the jaw. Usually caused by a benign tumor called an osteochondroma on one condyle of the mandible. It consists of a bony projection covered by a cartilage cap and can cause pain, swelling, and limited range of motion in the affected area. It can develop at any age although more often during adolescence. The growth process can continue indefinitely, with progressive worsening of the facial asymmetry. It can result in asymmetry of the jaw, facial deformities, and malocclusion.

Common Symptoms

Individuals with this condition may experience facial asymmetry, misalignment of the upper and lower teeth, restricted ability to fully open or close the mouth, discomfort in the temporomandibular joint, difficulties with speech, chewing, and possible psychological effects due to the discomfort.

Procedure Performed
