Congenital hemifacial hypertrophy is a rare developmental disorder characterized by unilateral enlargement of all the facial tissues of viscerocranium involving the teeth, bone, and soft tissues. Many case reports have been reported in the literature describing the characteristic clinical and radiological features, etiology, and conditions mimicking the hemifacial hypertrophy. In general, treatment is considered for the esthetic improvement in the form of soft tissue debulking, osteotomies, or orthognathic procedures. We report a case of true hemifacial hypertrophy presented with a severe temporomandibular joint ankylosis with the jaws locked in an anterior open bite deformity and its management.
