A rare case of unilateral aplasia of the mandibular condyle along with contralateral ankylosis of the temporomandibular joint in a 15 year old boy is presented here. It was not associated with any soft tissue aberrations suggestive of any syndromic etiology. Aplasia is a rare anomaly and refers to the insufficient development of the mandibular condyle. True agenesis of the mandibular condyle is extremely rare. The simultaneous existence of condylar aplasia on one side and temporomandibular joint ankylosis on the other side makes this case an even rarer one.
