Pain and dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) region represent a diagnostic challenge. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are usually diagnosed by means of a thorough patient history and comprehensive clinical examination. However, additional diagnostic tests, such as imaging of the TMJ area, are necessary in cases where the signs do not explain the symptoms. Neoplasms and pseudotumors of the TMJ are quite uncommon, but their early recognition is necessary in order prevent the delay of correct treatment.
