The etiology is not well known, possible causes may be developmental, traumatic, vascular, abnormal muscle pulling, nutritional, endocrinal, teratogenic, and infections. The orientation of the condylar heads can behelpful for the etiological diagnosis.This case report describes a 56-year-old woman who suffered from a unilateral, progressively increasing, radiating pain which intensified with the movement of the mandible and includes information about the diagnosis, management, radiographic and three-dimensional model features and review of the literature.
