An 18-year-old girl sought medical advice for an asymptomatic prominence of the right malar region evolving for two years because of cosmetic concern. Her medical history was relevant for Salmonella infection during a trip in Africa. The patient did not consume alcohol or use illicit drugs. She reported no history of trauma, fever, blurred vision or headache. On examination she was healthy. A prominence of the left lateral jaw was observed with normal overlying skin, limited mobility, and not painful to palpation.
