A 63-YEAR-OLD man presented with oral opening limitation, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) clicking on the left side, and moderate chewing pain. Physical examination revealed a maximum interincisal opening of 34 mm, with a lateral deviation of 4 mm toward the left side. No abnormal masses were found on palpation, although an initial clicking on the left side was evident. No asymmetry was observed, and the patient denied any previous trauma. Dental panoramic radiographs, lateral tomograms, and computed tomographic scans were obtained.
