Abstract

The patient showed bilateral agenesis of the mandibular condyle and glenoid fossa, rare features of hemifacial microsomia. The patient was treated with functional appliances to modify mandibular growth during active facial growth. After the pubertal growth spurt, treatment included rotational advancement of the mandible combined with alloplastic reconstruction of the condylar process and glenoid fossa.
