1/6. Bilateral condylar resorption in dermatomyositis: a case report.

    polymyositis is an inflammatory disease commonly affecting the striated muscle. When it is accompanied by characteristic skin lesions, the condition is called dermatomyositis. Bilateral condylar resorption has been reported with autoimmune conditions and chronic systemic steroids. We report the first documented case of bilateral condylar resorption in a patient with dermatomyositis. Possible etiologic factors and treatment outcomes are discussed.

2/6. 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.

4/6. myositis ossificans of medial pterygoid muscle. A cause for temporomandibular joint ankylosis.

    An unusual case of myositis ossificans of the medial pterygoid muscle has been discussed. It is important to know the exact cause of the temporomandibular joint ankylosis, for successful treatment. Computed tomographic scan and panoramic radiographs are essential diagnostic aids for evaluating conditions such as myositis ossificans. myositis ossificans can be one of the causes of extra-articular temporomandibular joint ankylosis.

5/6. Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva. An unusual cause of restricted mandibular movement.

    A 9-year-old girl is presented who was initially misdiagnosed and finally diagnosed with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva only after presentation with progressive limitation of her mouth opening. The clinical, histopathological, and molecular biological aspects of this uncommon disorder will be discussed. Furthermore, dental and surgical guidelines will be described.
