Unilateral condylar hyperplasia is characterised by slow progressive growth of the different parts of mandible, the aetiology of which is still unclear. It is a self-limiting condition mostly seen between the age of 11–30 years causing facial asymmetry and its progression ceases after a certain time. In literature until now very few cases have been reported and every case that is being reported adds to its features or the aetiology. Previously, it has been classified into two types that is, hemimandibular hyperplasia and hemimandibular elongation. Here, we report a similar case with a few features distinct from those reported earlier.
