287 Possible Causes for Microstomia

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    These findings suggest that regular application of the proposed exercise program may be useful in the management of microstomia in SSD patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Scleroderma is a disorder involving oral and facial tissues, with skin hardening, thin lips, deep wrinkles, xerostomia, tongue rigidity, and microstomia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In cases of microstomia due to scleroderma, increased levels of orbicularis oris muscle tension is observed 1,7 .[prime-journal.com]

  • Freeman-Sheldon Syndrome

    In this report, we describe a case of microstomia associated with club feet and ulnar deviation of the hands (Freeman-Sheldon syndrome) and the surgical technique for correction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The majority of these patients have microstomia and dental crowding, making oral hygiene difficult and increasing the risk of caries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Presence of microstomia is always associated with practical difficulties of oral hygiene maintenance and increased susceptibility to caries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    The main clinical features of this syndrome include generalized myotonic myopathy, skeletal dysplasia, blepharophimosis, microstomia, contracture of joints and short stature[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The combination of skeletal and muscular abnormalities may result in oro-dental manifestations such as atypical facies, with micrognathia, microstomia, pursed lips, crossbite[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] is an autosomal recessive trait characterized by mask-like face, narrow palpebral fissures (due to blepharophimosis, blepharospasm, and abnormal orbital configuration), microstomia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Auriculocondylar Syndrome

    The patient had severe micrognathia, large cheeks, microstomia, and overfolded helices with a large postauricular tag on her left ear.[gepedia.com] […] craniofacial malformation syndrome characterized by external ear anomalies, hypoplasia of the mandibular condyle, temporomandibular joint abnormalities, micrognathia, and microstomia[semanticscholar.org] Other frequently described features include prominent cheeks, cupped and posteriorly rotated ears, preauricular tags, and microstomia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22560091}.[genecards.org]

  • Hallermann Syndrome

    In the patients with Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome, presence of mandibular hypoplasia and microstomia results in difficult intubation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The nose appeared thin, sharp and hooked; the prominence of the chin was absent in the lateral view; a marked microstomia was evident as well.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Microstomia with a shortened ramus and forward displacement of the termporomandibular joints is characteristic.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid

    Microstomia is a term used to describe a small oral aperture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was no recurrence of microstomia for 2 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had recurrent aphthous stomatitis and presented microstomia caused by scar contracture of oral mucosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
