BACKGROUND: PDB is responsible of rapid bone resorption and disorganised bone formation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The patient was a 72-year-old female patient complaining of dental malposition and blatant prognathism. CONCLUSION: Clinicians should consider PDB in differential diagnosis for an elderly patient undergoing unexplained alteration in face profile and occlusion.
