Congenital infiltrating lipomatosis of the face (CIL-F) is a benign, congenital disorder of the adipose tissue that results in facial asymmetry and particularly presents during childhood. Only a few studies in the literature have reported hypertrophy of the coronoid process, temporomandibular process, and zygomatic bone causing ankylosis and/or trismus. This report describes a rare case of CIL-F presenting with temporomandibular joint findings, together with a literature review.
