The temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex joints of the human body. It consists of the mandibular condyle, glenoid fossa and the articular eminence of the temporal bone. Aplasia of the condyle is usually seen as part of a syndrome otherwise it is rare. We report a case of bilateral condylar aplasia in a 20-year-old male not associated with any syndrome. The patient reported to the department with a chief complaint of the underdeveloped lower jaw. Clinical examination, conventional radiographs, and 3D computer tomography images revealed a complete absence of condyle on the right and left sides.
