Parry-Romberg syndrome is a rare degenerative condition of unknown etiology characterized by slowly progressive atrophy of facial tissues including subcutaneous tissue, muscle, bone and skin. Along with the loss of facial symmetry it leads to several functional and psychological problems. Though the disease does not deteriorate further after few years of progress the deformity caused by this disease will not disappear. Moreover, there is no universally accepted treatment or permanent cure for this condition. Here a 45-year-old female with Parry-Romberg syndrome is presented along with a review of the literature concerning the general characteristics, etiology, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis and treatment.
