PMID: 7920358

This is usually due to a single severe injury or repeated minor injuries to muscle, although cases without a history of injury have been reported. Heterotopic ossification is rare in the orofacial region, especially in the medial pterygoid muscles. A case of medial pterygoid myositis ossificans with unique computed tomography findings is described.
