The Parry Romberg syndrome (PRS) is a rare neurocutaneous disorder characterized by progressive facial hemiatrophy. Parry Romberg syndrome is characterized by a slow progressive atrophy that appears in the early stages of life, primarily affecting the subcutaneous tissue and subjacent fat on one side of the face. Dental findings include delayed tooth eruption, retarded root formation, root resorption, oligodontia, microdontia, dilacerations, pulp stones, reduction in the height and width of the ramus and body of the mandible, and delayed mandibular angular development. We describe the case of a 24-year-old female patient with stabilized, moderate, facial hemiatrophy on the right side of her face with a varied presentation.
