Progressive/Idiopathic Condylar Resorption: Case Reports

‐ May 7, 2019 7:30am

Progressive condylar resorption (PCR) also known as idiopathic condylar resorption (ICR) is an uncommon, aggressive, degenerative disease of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) seen mostly in adolescent and young women. This condition leads to loss of condylar bone mass, decrease of mandibular ramal height, steep mandibular and occlusal plane angle, and an anterior open bite. Throughout 3 case reports, we review the pathogenesis of TM joint degenerative disease and the clinical management of TM joint arthritis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the physiopathology of TMJ athritic disease.
  • Make early diagnosis of signs and symptoms of TMJ arthritis.
  • Comprehend the indication of Total Joint replacement.
