Condylar hyperplasia – Differential Diagnosis
A condylar tumor, most notably an osteochondroma, is included in the differential diagnosis.
An osteochondroma usually is more irregular in shape compared with a hyperplastic condyle.
Surface irregularities and continued growth after cessation of skeletal growth should increase suspicion of this tumor.
Occasionally a condylar osteoma or large osteophyte that occurs in chronic degenerative joint disease may simulate condylar hyperplasia.
