Familial facial asymmetry (autosomal dominant hemihypertrophy?)

Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol. 1980 Oct;50(4):321-4. doi: 10.1016/0030-4220(80)90414-4.


A family in which several members were affected with facial hemihypertrophy is reported. Mandibular asymmetry and maxillary hypoplasia were common to all affected persons in this family. An autosomal dominant mode of inheritance appears to be the pattern of transmission of such a condition.
