A 52 years old lady presented with history of weakness and breathlessness on exertion. She noticed
changes in her facial appearance around twenty years of age which continued to advance progressively over the
last three decades. On physical examination her face showed advanced deformity and asymmetry in both horizontal
and vertical planes. There was significant deformity of maxilla with prominent and unequal enlargement of malar
eminences, stretched overlying skin and prominent superficial veins. The Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology from
prominent right maxillary area was consistent with the diagnosis of cherubism.
