The bifid mandibular condyle has also been termed as Double Headed Condyle or Condylar Duplication. Bifid condyle was first reported by Hrdlicka in 1941. Since then, to the best of our knowledge, about 49 cases of bifid condyle have been reported in medical literature. We present here six cases of bifid mandibular condyle that we encountered during the span of one year. These were incidental findings on panoramic radiographs and were later confirmed with coronal computed tomographs. This article also reviews the relevant literature.
