Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of hemifacial atrophy in a 10-year-old boy is described. The presentation in this patient is unusual because the lesion is extremely localized, and the abnormalities of teeth in the affected region are more severe than previously recorded. Alternative diagnoses are considered, and the results of a computed tomographic scan with three-dimensional reformatting are presented.
