    Trismus is defined as a limitation in the mouth- or jaw-opening ability due to reduced mandibular mobility. Limited mouth opening can be caused by several disorders affecting the masticatory system. Most of them involve the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the masticatory muscles. Ankylosis of...

    Aims: Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) is characterized by congenital contractures and joint deformities, but there are only a few reports of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) involvement. The objective of this investigation was to study the cause of limited mouth movement in this disease....
