The condylar articular cartilage is a mandibular growth site. As a result, developmental abnormalities at this location manifest as altered growth on the affected side of the condyle, mandibular ramus, mandibular body, and alveolar process. There are many causes of the various growth disturbances and abnormalities of the mandibular condyle and related structures. The authors report an interesting case of unilateral severe condylar hypoplasia secondary to chronic ear infection in childhood. Coronoid hyperplasia was also present on the ipsilateral side.
