Passive condylar hyperplasia: can we have a reactivation?

We want to present that the reactivation of condylar hyperplasia is completely possible. Despite the finish of postsurgical orthodontic treatment was finished, our team of work has a protocol of following of the patients at least 5 years after the orthognatic surgical procedure. We had a preoperative following of a woman patient who started the preoperative orthodontic treatment with an active condylar hyperplasia, however with the time this condition was classified in the immediate preoperative planning as a passive, and the posterior following show it. But suddenly, she started to present a minor transversal deviation of her mandible, so we decide to study the case again and now we had a patient with an active condylar hyperplasia again. We pretend to show the case and the resolution only with a condylar shaving without the use of orthodontic appliances again and the importance of the long term following of the patients in the orthodontic-surgical teams.

Conflict of interest: None declared.
