1/5. A case of myositis ossificans as a complication of tetanus treated by surgical excision.

    myositis ossificans is a heterotopic ossification of skeletal muscles which is commonly seen after trauma. However, it is rarely seen as a complication of tetanus. We report a case of myositis ossificans following tetanus in a female adult patient presenting with ankylosis of both elbows in extension.

2/5. ankylosis of the jaw in a patient with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva.

    A case of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is presented. This uncommon connective tissue disease tends to produce progressing ectopic osteogenesis. Because there are no reported curative procedures for TMJ ankylosis occurring in this condition, a palliative surgical approach is described. Etiology, diagnosis, and prognosis of the disease is reviewed. Recent research in BMP cytokine-induced bone repair may allow new approaches to treating this debilitating disease in the future.

3/5. Clinicopathologic conference: trismus following dental treatment.

    myositis ossificans traumatica is a rare clinical entity in the maxillofacial region. We present a case of myositis ossificans traumatica of the temporalis muscle following dental treatment in the form of a clinicopathologic conference. A review of the literature supporting our findings is provided.

4/5. myositis ossificans circumscripta: a complication of tetanus.

    myositis ossificans developed in a 67-year-old man recovering from tetanus. This rare complication develops in the convalescent phase of tetanus through metaplastic changes in undifferentiated connective tissue cells in areas of myocellular injury. anoxia, hematoma formation, and immobilization may be contributing factors. Permanent loss of joint motion may be the end result of this ossifying process.

5/5. Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva: report of a case with guidelines for pediatric dental and anesthetic management.

    Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare heritable disorder of progressive heterotopic ossification leading to joint ankylosis throughout the body. Permanent ankylosis of the jaw may be precipitated by minimal soft tissue trauma, a potentially devastating complication following routine dental care during childhood. Assiduous precautions are necessary in administering dental care to children who have FOP as exemplified in this case report. Routine dental prophylaxis is also necessary in order to minimize the need for invasive procedures.
