Laterognathia (hemi-mandibular elongation) The characteristic of hemi mandibular hyperplasia is facial asymmetry (oversized lower face on one side). Hemimandibular hyperplasia (HH) is a developmental asymmetry characterized by three-dimensional enla. Hemimandibular hyperplasia is a developmental asymmetry characterized by three-dimensional enlargement of half of the mandible.6 The hyperplastic side.

A secondary surgical procedure should be carried out to recontour the lower border of the right hemimandible with a genioplasty, but the patient is satisfied with his body image and does not hyperplasa to undergo more surgery.

PA cephalometry, panoramic radiograph, and nuclear imaging are some of the techniques that can be used for diagnosis. The explanations are demonstrated by the illustrations of some cases. Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

A rare case of hemimandibular hyperplasia Janaki K, Valavan N P – Indian J Oral Sci

The cells are large, the cytoplasm is vesicular, and there is abundant newly produced cartilage matrix between hemimandiblar. Janaki K, Valavan N P. In this study, the authors classified the patients into typical and atypical types of HH on the basis of clinical and radiologic observations in an effort to achieve a simplified hemimanxibular efficient surgical management on the basis of the severity of deformity. The fibrocartilaginous layer is distributed in a diffuse but regular manner all over the condylar head.

American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. The dental occlusion showed a Class II division 2 malocclusion deep hypdrplasiaand the dental midline was centered Fig 1b. Clinical and radiographic experience as well as histological findings leave no doubt that the term “condylar hyperplasia” refers only to hyperplasia of the condyle alone and should therefore not be used to mean the two hemimandibular anomalies as is the case in the literature today.


Idiopathic noncondylar hemimandibular hyperplasia.

How to cite this URL: Bone scanning, a tracer method based on the injection of phosphates labeled with a radionuclide, is a noninvasive technique to evaluate whether the condylar growth is still active. In the case of young patients with HH, this procedure should be performed as soon as possible to prevent the development of an oblique occlusal plane and ipsilateral compensatory maxillary growth 9—12 and to improve symmetry by the spontaneous remodeling processes in the facial structures.

International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine. As a result, the occlusal plane tilts and is at a lower level on the affected side, whereas the teeth generally remain in occlusion.

The most common form of condylar hperplasia is unilateral condylar hyperplasia where one condyle overgrows hyoerplasia other condyle leading to facial asymmetry. In Aprila year-old boy was referred to the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, University Hospital of Parma, complaining of temporomandibular joint TMJ discomfort and subluxation of the right condyle for almost 10 months.

Condylar hyperplasia

An early high condylectomy was performed. Lateral Cephalogram Click here to view. This case report shows some important modifications in the facial skeleton, and quite good functional and esthetic results, obtained in a year-old patient treated by early high condylectomy, without pre- or postsurgical orthodontic therapy. Hemimandibular hyperplasia HH is a developmental asymmetry characterized by three-dimensional enlargement of one half of the mandible.

Hemimandibular hyperplasia–hemimandibular elongation.

Diagnosis of asymmetry can be done through many different methods. The maxilla usually follows the mandible and grows downward on the affected side. The gonial angle was characteristically rounded off, and the mandibular canal was displaced to the lower border of the mandible Fig 1c. Hemimandibular elongation, hemimandibular hyperplasia, facial asymmetry.


Views Read Edit View history. Hemimandibulaf hyperplasia can be considered to be the end result of primary cartilage formation and secondary bone replacement. Clinically, the facial appearance hyperplssia distorted, with an increase in the height of the affected side. Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology. Acquired asymmetries occur as a result of traumas, infections, functional shifts and tumors.

The latter involves only the condyle, which is radiographically homogeneously enlarged, but the horizontal ramus is not increased in height and the mandibular canal is not displaced.

We are convinced that there exist pure and mixed forms of both growth anomalies because we have observed several such clinical cases. Fig 2f Posteroanterior cephalogram showing the skeletal symmetry after orthognathic surgery. An updated review of the literature”. Histologically, the hyperactive growth includes the whole fibrocartilaginous layer. Fig 2c Posteroanterior cephalogram of the patient showing the inferior displacement of the mandibular angle and the hemimandiular compensatory maxillary growth.

Many treatment options exist for this type of condition. Hemimandibular hyperplasia HH is a rare malformation of non-neoplastic origin characterized by a 3-dimensional enlargement of one side of the mandible, ie, the enlargement of the condyle, the condylar neck, and the ascending and horizontal rami. There are two basically different malformations of one side of the mandible which we call hemimandibular hyperplasia and hhemimandibular elongation respectively.

No subluxation, TMJ pain, or dysfunction is observed.
