Abstract

Anatomic variations in the condylar morphology, like bifid mandibular condyles, are a relatively uncommon anomaly.We report four cases (two in patients and two in archived specimens) of bifid mandibular condyles with emphasis on their aetiopathogenesis and radiographic features. A case of bifid mandibular condyles in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis is reported which, to the best of our knowledge, is the first reported case in the literature. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Anatomical variations, like bifid mandibular condyles, may mimic a fracture/tumour. Therefore, knowledge and awareness about this entity is important for a general dental practitioner.
