Masseter muscle hypertrophy is due to oral parafunctional habits, occlusal disharmony, altered emotional and psychological status, and at times congenital factors. Masseter muscle hypertrophy occurs usually at puberty involving unilateral or bilateral masseter muscles and affects functional quality in a severely hypertrophied muscle. This presents a report of a 14-year-old girl with bilateral masseter hypertrophy which compromised the esthetic value of the face. The diagnosis was made using clinical examination, conventional radiography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
