Abstract

The appearance of the mandibular condyle varies greatly among different age groups and individual morphologic changes may occur on the basis of simple developmental variability as well as remodelling of condyle to accomodate developmental variations, malocclusion, trauma and other developmental abnormalities. Deviations in the growth of the mandibular condyle can affect both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the face. Causes for these malformations can be numerous and are complex in nature. Pathological conditions can be subdivided into; 1) Congenital malformations, 2) Primary growth disorders, 3) Acquired diseases or trauma with associated growth disorders. Anomalies of mandibular condyle are generally classified as aplasia, hypoplasia and hyperplasia. This paper highlights a case of bilateral condylar hypoplasia with kissing molars not associated with any syndromes and thus a seperate entity.

Key words:
Condylar hypoplasia, Kissing molars, Rosette formation, Micrognathia, Bird facies
