MELO, Suzana Lubambo de et al. Bilateral Bifid Mandibular Condyle: A Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.3, pp.922-926. ISSN 0717-9502.

The bifid mandibular condyle is an exceedingly rare anomaly, frequently diagnosed as an incidental finding in a panoramic radiograph. Its etiology and pathogenesis are unknown, though the most acceptable theory suggests that trauma is at the origin of the condition. This article reports a new case of bilateral bifid condyle in a 21-year-old female with history of trauma in childhood.
