Fibrous dysplasia is a benign fibro-osseous disorder of unknown etiology that may affect the craniofacial region causing significant impairment of facial esthetics and function. This paper reports a case of a 21-year-old male, which was investigated and diagnosed with craniofacial fibrous dysplasia involving an overgrowth over right maxillary and mandibular region associated with facial asymmetry, severe occlusal cant and anterior open bite. Management of the case included surgical excision, cosmetic contouring and orthodontic intervention. The case was reviewed over a period of two years, which demonstrate stable treatment outcome.
