An 80-year-old lady presented incidental findings of unusual calcifications of the right TMJ. The red arrow shows a triangular opaque “beak” on the anterior surface of the condyle and two circular and one faint curvilinear opacity anterior to the condyle (3 orange arrows).
The latter are probably calcifications of the joint ligament capsule and/or possibly calcifications of the lateral pterygoid muscle. MRI would show better what tissues were involved. However, as the lady is asymptomatic no further investigation or treatment is required.
