The osteochondroma, also known as osteocartilaginous exostosis, is one of the most common benign tumors of the axial skeleton. These tumours rarely affect the facial skeleton and a true osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle is a very uncommon entity. The tumors are usually slow growing, and symptoms develop over a long time. The most common presentation of the condylar osteochondroma consists of a changing occlusion, the development of facial asymmetry, and a posterior open bite on the affected side. In this case, we treated an osteochondroma of Lt. mandibular condyle through excision of the lesion via the temporal approach to the temporomandibular joint.
