Hemifacial microsomia. A case report and review.Indian J Dent Res. 2002 Apr-Jun; 13(2):82-6.IJ
Hemifacial microsomia (HFM) is a variable asymmetric craniofacial malformation resulting in hypoplasia of the components of the first and second branchial arches. Because of the extremely variable expressively of the HFM, treatment measures also vary considerably from the use of activator to total reconstruction of TM joint and management of secondary deformities of maxilla, nose, orbit and zygomatic bone. We present a case of HFM type I of mild deformity treated with onlay bone grafting.
