Hemifacial hypertrophy abbreviated as (HFH) is rare congenital disease characterized by unilateral enlargement of the head and teeth. It is classified as true. Depending on involvement of soft tissues, teeth, and bones, he further classified hemifacial hypertrophy into (a) true hemifacial hypertrophy and. Two cases of congenital hemifacial hypertrophy are described. To our knowledge , this is the first report of this syndrome in a black African population. Possible.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

An excisional biopsy of the growth at the left buccal mucosa was found to be lipomatous in origin. The prevalence rate of HFH is 1: This change in the physical properties of the cell membrane then appears to cause a complex enzymatic cascade involving the release of lipases and other enzymes as well as a rapid apoptotic cascade that causes adipocyte cell death.

Lipodissolve for subcutaneous fat reduction and skin retraction. It is a condition that appears to affect the derivatives of the first pharyngeal arch, though the middle ear structures seem spared 3.

However, rare conditions like hemifacial hypertrophy are ill understood, and the possibility of achieving perfect hy;ertrophy in these cases is a herculean task.

Permanent canines, bicuspids, and first molars are involved most frequently [ 1213 ]. Multiple tissue involvement has resulted due to etiological heterogeneity like heredity, chromosomal abnormalities, altered intrauterine environment, and endocrine dysfunctions.

True hemihypertrophy involves not only the soft tissues of the body but the hard tissues as well. Family history was noncontributory. OPG view showed that the mandible was unilaterally enlarged with the body of mandible being longer on the right side with an enlarged right condyle resulting in mandibular deviation to the left [ Figure 5 ].

The pinna of the right ear was slightly enlarged and there was deviation of the nose and the chin to the left hyperrtrophy, which appeared to be the normal side [ Figure 1 ]. Genitourinary system disorders, such as hypospadias, cryptorchidism, and medullary sponge kidney, were also noted occasionally [ 13 ].

This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner [1]. Temporomandibular jointsmuscles of mastication and malocclusions — Jaw joints, chewing muscles and bite abnormalities Bruxism Condylar resorption Mandibular dislocation Malocclusion Crossbite Open bite Overbite Overeruption Overjet Prognathia Retrognathia Scissor bite Maxillary hypoplasia Temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

He performed the procedure using almost 50 mL of modified Klein solution before the suction and reported positive results. The right buccal mucosa was thickened and hung in pendulous folds Figure 4.


However, no genetic studies had been carried out to confirm the diagnosis. Ultrasound assisted liposuction consist of repetitive expansion and passive contraction of adipocytes, resulting in rupture of their cellular membrane and liquefaction of fat.

Competing Interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests. The growth of the neural tube follows a cephalocaudal gradient of growth and it reasonable to expect that some tube segments are more involved than others.

Table of Contents Alerts. Stern, Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology: To the unfamiliar clinician, this condition can constitute a baffling diagnostic problem. Dental abnormalities of deciduous teeth are less common and often overlooked. Enlargement and deformity of all tissue of the face, including teeth and their related tissues in the jaw, are the key findings in the diagnosis of hemifacial hypertrophy 5.
