62 Possible Causes for Masseter Spasm

  • Tetanus

    It also had a full blown clinical picture of neonatal tetanus including: masseter spasm; generalized rigidity; a high pitched cry: and intermittent opisthotonos posturing.[] Severe masseter and intercostal muscle spasm impaired airway access and ventilation.[] A positive test result (reflex spasm of the masseters on touching the posterior pharyngeal wall) was seen in 359 (94%) of 380 patients with tetanus and in no patient without[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 5

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive and generally fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Most cases are sporadic, but high familial incidence is observed occasionally. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 5 (ALS5) is one of many subtypes of familial ALS. It has been related to mutations in the SPG11 gene, a[…][]

  • Succinylcholine

    Abstract We report the case of a 20-year-old woman who developed masseter spasm after receiving succinylcholine for rapid sequence intubation.[] Did malignant hyperthermia cause our patient’s masseter spasm? We do not think so.[] Sometimes referred to as "jaws of steel," masseter spasm secondary to anesthetic administration may progress to malignant hyperthermia.[]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    The triad of masseter spasm, hypercarbia and hyperthermia within 30 minutes of exposure to triggering factors was present and was treated successfully with dantrolene.[] Neither masseter spasm nor rigidity of the limbs was seen during induction. Body temperature (BT) at induction was 36.0 degrees C.[] spasm if succinylcholine has been used Generalized muscle rigidity Later signs Hyperkalemia Rapid increase in core body temperature Grossly elevated blood levels of creatine[]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    Abstract We report an undiagnosed case of myotonia congenita in a 24-year-old previously healthy primigravida, who developed life threatening masseter spasm following a standard[] ., masseter spasm, opisthotonus) to attacks of weakness and paralysis.[] spasm, and cramping.[]

  • Facial Hemiatrophy

    Abstract The rare combination of progressive facial hemiatrophy, linear scleroderma and spasm of the homolateral masseter muscle was observed in a 39 year old woman.[] PATIENT: A 37-year-old woman had a 3-year history of involuntary spasms of the right masseter muscle in association with localized scleroderma and facial hemiatrophy.[] Abstract Spontaneous spasms began in the left masseter muscle six years following the onset of facial hemiatrophy in a young woman.[]

  • Central Core Disease

  • Hyperpyrexia

    Stop surgery if it is elective and if there are signs of masseter spasm or a fulminant crisis.[] All the classical signs such as masseter spasm (biting of the tube), increased rigidity of the limbs, a rapid and sudden rise in the body temperature (107 F, 41.67 C), tachycardia[] Spasm of the masseter muscle is often first noted. There is muscular rigidity despite a paralysing agent. If breathing is still spontaneous there is tachypnoea.[]

  • Oromandibular Dystonia

    She had bilateral masseter spasms and considerable difficulty in moving her jaw to the right, particularly when the upper dentures were in place.[]

  • Komuragaeri Disease

    With progression the illness involves the pectoral girdle and trunk muscles and finally the masseters and temporal muscles. The spasms usually spare the facial muscles.[] Frequent painful spasms of the masseter, deltoid, biceps, index finger and thumb lasting 1-2 minutes were observed. She also had spontaneous multifocal myoclonic jerks.[] Her masseters, biceps and brachioradialis muscles were hypertrophied.[]
