Asymptomatic myositis ossificans of the medial pterygoid muscles: A case report

Tong/Christiansen/Heisler/Hinshaw, Jr./Hasso


PMID: 7920358

Traumatic myositis ossificans, also known as myositis ossificans circumscripta or fibrodysplasia ossificans circumscripta, is a form of dystrophic calcification leading to heterotopic ossification of intramuscular connective tissue. 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.
