CORCHERO MARTIN, Guadalupe et al. Bifid condyle: Case report. Med. oral patol. oral cir. bucal (Ed.impr.) [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.3, pp.277-279. ISSN 1698-4447.

The double headed mandible condyle is a rare alteration that is frequently diagnosticated as an incidental finding in a panoramic radiograph. The different theories about its etiology are explained in this article. Symptoms described with bifid condyles vary from case to case, but in most instances are absent. Computer tomography is the ideal imaging method to evaluate the condyle morphology and to role out any degenerative process to achieve the differential diagnosis. Treatment is conservative for symptomatic patients with TMJ disorders, surgical treatment is described in literature in TMJ ankylosis that develops in bifid condyles secondary to trauma.

Palavras-chave : Bifid condyle; double headed condyle; condylar duplication.
