Parry-Romberg syndrome, also known as progressive hemi facial atrophy has been described as having clinical overlap with Morphea en coup de sabre or linear scleroderma. The aetiology of this rare disorder is believed to be of auto-immune origin and presents with both intra-oral and extra-oral deformities in the craniofacial region.There is currently little information available in the literature discussing the dental features and orthodontic management of patients with Parry-Romberg syndrome. Here we hope to raise awareness in the dental community regarding the presenting features and management of Parry-Romberg syndrome. We have outlined the treatment and management the patient received from both Maxillofacial and Orthodontic departments over a six year period.
