Trismus-pseudocamptodactyly syndrome (TPS) (OMIM#158300), also known as Hecht syndrome, is a rare autosomal dominant distal arthrogryposis. Bilateral hyperplasia of the coronoid processes has been reported to cause trismus. In this study, we report a case of TPS definitively diagnosed on the basis of clinical signs in a patient who had bilateral hypoplastic mandibular condyles and shallow mandibular fossa; TPS in such patients have never been reported in the literature. On the basis of the present case, we propose that a hypoplastic mandibular condyle and shallow mandibular fossa are also clinical features of TPS.
- Hypoplastic mandibular condyle
- Shallow mandibular fossa
- Trismus-pseudocamptodactyly syndrome
