Hemimandibular hypertrophy and its variants result from unilateral excessive growth of the mandible and involve both the body and ramus of mandible. This causes facial asymmetry and in turn accompanying psychological problems. In this report we discuss use of imaging in diagnosis of these lesions and investigate the different variants.
Keywords: Facial Asymmetry, Hemimandibular Elongation, Hemimandibular Hypertrophy, Hybrid Phenotypes
