Abstract
Introduction: Osteochondroma is one of the most common benign bone tumors of axial skeleton but it is rarely seen in maxillofacial region. Only about 1% of these occur within the head and neck region but when it presents more than half of these appear in coronoid process. Osteochondroma of the mandibular condyle is very rare. The clinical presentation of condylar osteochondroma mostly includes malocclusion, facial asymmetry, temporomandibular joint dysfunctions and disturbances during mouth opening and radiographically, the lesion presents an enlargement of the affected structure and a slight radiopacity increase.
Case Report: We describe a case of osteochondroma affecting the right mandibular condyle of a male patient with the chief complaints of facial asymmetry and temporomandibular joint dysfunctions.
Conclusion: Although osteochondroma is not a frequent lesion for maxillofacial area, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of masses in the temporomandibular joint region.

Keywords: Mandibular condyle, Osteochondroma, Panoramic radiography, Temporomandibular joint
