The rate of dental injuries following trachealintubation is approximately 1:4500 [2]. To our knowl-edge, there are no previous reports on progressive con-dylar resorption, chin deviation and malocclusion.
‘Idiopathic condylar resorption’ is a progressive decrease in condylar mass and change in shape, whichoccurs most frequently in women between 15 and35 years of age [3, 4]. Factors associated with anincreased incidence of condylar resorption includeinfectious, autoimmune, endocrine and cardiovasculardiseases, nutritional and metabolic disorders, andtrauma [5–10]. Our patient had nutritional and endo- Figure 1 Deviation of the mandible to the right and crine disorders associated with obesity, as well as malocclusion, with right cross bite and left scissor’s trauma during four intubation attempts. Of these three factors, forceful laryngoscopy might best explain theimmediate postoperative pain and progressive mandib-ular deviation.
Idiopathic condylar resorption should be consid- ered in patients suffering severe temporomandibularjoint pain, malocclusion and mandibular midline devi-ation following forced laryngoscopy or other manoeu-vres. Computed tomography or magnetic resonanceimaging can confirm the diagnosis, with consultationand treatment by a maxillofacial specialist. Customisedprosthetic replacement of the joint is a treatmentoption that can restore both function and aesthetics[11].
