Abstract

Myositis ossificans traumatica (MOT) is a non-neoplastic, heterotopic bone growth within muscle or fascia that is thought to be caused by acute trauma, but it can also be caused by a variety of other factors. A 14 year-old boy presented with progressive limitation of mouth opening over the period of one month. Computed tomography revealed multiloculated cystic lesion seen overlying outer cortex ramus of left mandible and peripheral rim calcification at deeper fibers of left masseter muscle, and also thin solid periosteal reaction seen in adjacent to outer cortex of left ramus of mandible. Since 1924, only 52 occurrences of MOT of the masseter muscle have been described in the English literature. The major treatment option is surgical excision of the ossification, with ongoing postoperative monitoring to prevent relapse.
