Abstract

Pseudogout is a disease caused by calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate (CPPD) deposition in a joint and occurs most often in the knee joint. Eighteen reports of pseudogout arising from in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) have been published in the Japanese literature. We report a rare case of pseudogout in the inferior joint space of the TMJ of a 59-year-old man. He was referred to our department because of pain and trismus in the right TMJ. A computed tomographic scan and a magnetic resonance image of the area showed a calcified mass anterior to the right condylar head. Extirpation of the calcified mass was performed under general anesthesia, and a white, chalky mass was removed. Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction showed CPPD in the calcified mass. No signs or symptoms of recurrence have occurred after a 1-year follow-up.
