Abstract

Osteochondroma is one of the most common benign tumors that occur in the bone, but in the head and neck region, osteochondroma appears rarely. Malocclusion, temporomandiublar disorders and facial asymmetry can occur in most cases with osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle. Most surgeons prefer massive removal of osteochondroma and reconstruction of condyle, simultaneously, to prevent various complications, such as a lateral open bite on the contralateral side. We report a surgical treatment and reconstruction of osteochondroma on a mandibular condyle through intraoral approach.
