Parry-Romberg syndrome ; progressive hemifacial atrophy
Parry-Romberg syndrome(PRS) is a degenerative disease characterized by progressive hemifacial atrophy. A 10-year-old girl who had been treated for linear scleroderma at the dermatologic department visited the orthodontic department. The frontal facial photograph showed mild facial asymmetry. On the left side, mild atrophy of soft tissue, enophthalmos, cheek depression, and dry skin with dark pigmentation were observed. The radiograph showed the hypoplasia of both the maxilla and mandible on the left side. This case report describes the treatment of a patient with PRS for 7 years. To minimize the effect of progressive atrophy on the facial growth, a hybrid appliance was used. The facial photos and radiographic records were periodically taken to analyze the progression of PRS. Although it is impossible to prevent the progression of facial asymmetry, it appears to be possible to limit the atrophic effect. After the stabilization of PRS, the orthodontic treatment by the fixed appliance was performed. Additionally, autologous fat graft was performed three times at 6 month intervals. After the treatment, the patient had a confident smile and facial asymmetry was improved.
