PURPOSE: This study summarizes the literature concerning osteochondroma of the mandibular coronoid process and presents a case of 1-stage treatment for this condition and concomitant facial asymmetry.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 20-year-old man presented with osteochondroma of the mandibular coronoid process. Radiologic images showed a mushroom-shaped coronoid growth inside the zygomatic arch with outward expansion. Coronoidectomy and reduction malarplasty were performed in 1 stage. The literature on osteochondroma of the mandibular coronoid process since 1943 was reviewed concerning etiology, pathogenesis, clinical characteristics, diagnosis, and treatment.
RESULTS: At 20-month follow-up, the patient achieved markedly improved joint function and a symmetric facial appearance after excision of the osteochondroma.
CONCLUSION: Coronoidectomy combined with simultaneous reduction malarplasty could be an alternative and promising method to treat osteochondroma of the coronoid process with secondary facial asymmetry.
