Osteochondroma is one of the common bone tumours but is rarely seen in the head and neck region. Osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle, extending to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is an infrequent occurrence. Patients commonly present with restricted mouth opening and malocclusion. Due to the significant overlap in features between chondromas and condylar hyperplasia, it is very likely to be misdiagnosed, resulting in treatment errors. In this report, an interesting case of a large osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle extending into the zygomatic and petrous part of the temporal bone involving the left TMJ in a 35-year-old female patient is described who presented with facial asymmetry and restricted mouth opening. This paper outlines the clinico-radiographic and histopathological features for diagnosis and appropriate treatment of osteochondroma.
