Abstract

The amplitude of buccal opening was limited due to fibrosis of the middle pterygoideus muscle two months after a patient had undergone anaesthesia of the lower dental nerve trunk. Surgery was required. A physiological explanation was attempted based on other cases reported in the literature.
