Abstract Background A defect of condylar morphology can be caused by several sources. Case report A case of altered condylar morphology in adult male with temporomandibular disorders was reported in 30-year-old male patient. Erosion and flattening of the left mandibular condyle were observed by panoramic x-ray. The patient was treated with splint therapy that determined mandibular advancement. Eight months after the therapy reduction in joint pain and a greater opening of the mouth was observed although crepitation sounds during mastication were still noticeable. Conclusion During the following months of gnatologic treatment new bone growth in the left condyle was observed by radiograph with further improvement of the symptoms. Background The temporomandibular joint TMJ is a complex joint essential for speech mastication and swallowing. The mandibular condyle is an ovoidal bony structure that articulates with the temporal bone by means of a biconcave disk. Both articular surfaces are covered by a connective fibrous tissue .
