Mandibular condylar osteochondroma (OS) is a rare lesion though most common benign tumor of the axial skeleton. OSs are slow-growing tumors originating from the cortex of the bone resulting in facial asymmetry, temporomandibular dysfunction and occlusal derangement. We present an extremely rare case of OS of the mandibular condyle in a 52-year-old male patient who presented to our hospital with gradual deviation of the lower jaw, difficulty in opening the mouth and chewing the food for 20 years with clinicoradiological and pathological correlation.
