Crossed hemifacial hyperplasia: a diagnostic dilemma.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  17456967     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Crossed hemifacial hyperplasia is a rare condition producing facial asymmetry and overgrowth of the extremities of the opposite side. Very few cases are reported in literature. A case of an 11-year-old female is presented here to supplement existing clinical knowledge with many of the reported clinical and orofacial findings. Emphasis is placed on diagnosis of the condition by thoughtful elimination and the necessity of a multi-disciplinary approach to its management.
