Abstract

Autologous blood injection around the articular capsule and/or into the articular cavity, which is one of the treatments for recurrent temporomandibular joint dislocation, was recently reintroduced. Here, we present the management of recurrent temporomandibular joint dislocation by autologous blood injection in an 84-year-old female. After the treatment, although the right condylar process had settled just beneath the articular tubercle, the dislocation had improved and the patient was able to close her mouth without difficulty.
