434 Possible Causes for Torticollis, Trismus

  • Parapharyngeal Abscess

    Trismus (spasm of jaw muscle) is minimal.[en.wikipedia.org] The combination of a parapharyngeal abscess and torticollis in an adult, due to a spastic contraction of the sterno-cleido-mastoid muscle is an extremely rare condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Torticollis and fever were present in all the patients. The mean length of hospital stay was 7 days. There were no complications associated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peritonsillar Abscess

    Two groups were compared based on time to oral intake, grade of trismus, pain severity and duration of hospitalization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Trismus: inability to open the mouth due to muscle inflammation and spasm of the masticator muscle Caused by irritation and reflex spasm of the Internal Pterygoid muscle Torticollis[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] Other signs and symptoms may be observed: Painful swallowing Fever and chills Spasm in the muscles of the jaw (trismus) and neck ( torticollis ) Ear pain on the same side[m.webmd.com]

  • Retropharyngeal Abscess

    The presenting symptoms, for all patients, were fever, odynophagia, torticollis, and trismus, and the clinical examination showed bulging of the posterior wall of the oropharynx[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here we report a rare case of retropharyngeal abscess with a complication of torticollis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Retropharyngeal vs Peritonsillar R: 6 yo, P: Teens R: fever, sore throat, neck stiffness P: fever, sore throat, trismus R: purulence of retropharyngeal LN P: purulence in[johnsarm.net]

  • Abscess

    Clinical Presentation Unilateral sore throat occasionally accompanied by ipsilateral ear pain Fever Muffled "hot potato" voice Dysphagia with pooling of saliva and drooling Trismus[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] […] prognatism) Resorption Retrognathia (retrognatism) Sleep apnea Tartar (Calculus) TMD (Pain and Cracking of the Jaw) Tooth Discolouration Tooth sensitivity (sensitive teeth) Torus Trismus[studiodentaire.com] ., behind the eye) abscesses, recalcitrant inner ear infections (often--but not always--accompanied by torticollis ), and especially infections originating around the teeth[bio.miami.edu]

  • Oromandibular Dystonia

    However, the trismus improved mildly and transitorily. Therefore, coronoidotomy was done under general anesthesia. The jaw opening increased to 50 mm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Torticollis or dystonic writer's camp preceded the syndrome in two patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case history reports a case of jaw-closing OMD accompanied by trismus-related TMJ osteoarthritis (OA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Methylphenidate

    Following emergence, he had trismus and jaw discomfort.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The present report describes a previously healthy toddler who developed transient torticollis and orolingual dyskinesias following accidental exposure to methylphenidate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diphenhydramine

    Within 2 minutes she rapidly developed trismus, dysarthria, tremors of the upper extremities, left-sided weakness, and diminished consciousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additionally, he had torticollis, intermittent tongue thrusting, and sporadic oculogyric crises.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Most patients experienced rapidly developing trismus, facial dystonia, dysarthria, and occasionally, decreases in consciousness, motor incoordination, and weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meige Syndrome

    Two months after switching from risperidone to paliperidone, his eye blinking, light sensitivity, jaw pain, and trismus gradually improved, although the dysarthria persisted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A patient with Meige syndrome associated with spasmodic torticollis was treated with benztropine mesylate (Cogentin) at doses of 12-16 mg daily.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Oromandibular Symptoms: • Difficulty opening the mouth (trismus) • Clenching or grinding of the teeth (bruxism) • Spasms of jaw opening • Sideways deviation or protrusion[parkinsonsresource.org]

  • Cyclobenzaprine

    Pain, swelling and trismus are undesirable effects of extraction of impacted mandibular third molars.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Very rarely cyclobenzaprine toxicity can result in extrapyramidal symptoms, but occurrence of torticollis has not been reported so far.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors assessed both sides of each participant's mouth for differences in pain, swelling and trismus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome
