Case of the Week: Condylar Ankyloses 1


This is something I don’t see very often so don’t have a ton of examples of this but it is a really neat find.  Condylar ankyloses is just like it sounds – the condyle fuses to the fossa.  Cases have been reported to be due to trauma and I have no clue what the history on this image is only that it was a confirmed case of condylar ankyloses.
