Parry-Romberg syndrome, also known as progressive facial hemiatrophy, was first described by Parry in 1825 and Romberg in 1846.
Parry-Romberg syndrome has similar characteristics, but there tends to be more extensive involvement of the ipsilateral subcutaneous tissue, calvarium, and orbit, (3) and facial hemiatrophy is typical rather than the hemifacial cutaneous sclerosis that typifies linear scleroderma.
