The bifid condyle is a rather uncommon condition that is diagnosed radiographically. It is characterized by the duplicity of the head of the mandibular condyle and thus, it is also known as double - headed condyle. The bifid condyle’s aetiology and pathogenesis are not known. It is said that it may be a developmental abnormality or that it may occur due to trauma. In the literature, only 30 cases of bilateral bifid mandibular condyle have been reported. The present case is a 23-yearold young male patient with bilateral bifid mandibular condyle, which was diagnosed during a panoramic radiographical examination.
