Parry Romberg syndrome(also known as progressive Hemifacial atrophy) is a degenerative condition characterized by atrophic changes affecting one side of the face. An Autoimmune mechanism is suspected, may be a variant of localized scleroderma, but the precise etiology and the pathogenesis of this acquired disorder remains unknown. Here, we report a case of 19 year old female with progressive hemifacial atrophy involving the left side of the face. There is no definitive treatment for this condition, but an attempt to use restorative plastic surgery which includes fat or silicone implants, flap or pedicle grafts or bone implants can be done to improve facial disfigurement.
