Parry–Romberg syndrome (PRS) is a rare condition that still having no clear etiology. It is marked by a progressive hemifacial atrophy (PHA) of the muscular, bony, glandular, and fat tissues. Such manifestations are especially present in the lower third of the face. It causes important esthetic problems together with functional and psychological issues due to facial asymmetry. The present case report involves a 33-year-old woman with PHA that started at the age of 12. Despite the evident involvement of the left side tissues and the early age of onset, she had neither sight changes nor dental malformations. PRS is a rare disorder causing PHA that could be misdiagnosed as linear scleroderma. It affects the patient's life quality on various levels. Hence, further studies and a multidisciplinary approach are necessary to determine the exact etiology and to establish precise guidelines for the treatment planning.
