Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) involving condyle are unusual clinical presentation affecting younger group of society with only 12 cases reported till today in English literature. In this case of ABC condyle following resection, reconstruction of temporomandibular joint was done by alloplastic condylar prosthesis as a primary choice. Monthly basis follow-up was done for 1-year with a successful result. Reviewing the reconstructive options used in ABC condyle cases we found that the condylar head add-on system has shown a satisfactory result in comparison to costochondral graft with no donor site morbidity. We recommend condylar head add-on system should be preferred as a primary reconstructive option, reserving the autograft for recurrence cases.
