A case of mandibular asymmetry is presented. It appears that in this patient the mandible was adapted to changes in the maxillary sinus area. Abnormal bone growth of unknown aetiology inside the sinus most likely caused complete remodelling in the maxillary sinuses and asymmetry of the mandible. Special tests used for detailed assessment of the patient supported the definitive diagnosis.
