Abstract

Myositis ossificans is a non-neoplastic heterotopic bone formation that can affect muscles, tendons, aponeuroses, and fasciae. Its etiology is not fully elucidated yet, but it is believed that there may be a genetic predisposition from an autosomal dominant transmission, with trauma being the main triggering factor of the ossification process. Although it is most commonly found in the extremities, this condition can rarely affect the head and neck, especially affecting the chewing muscles. Given the scarcity of reports in the literature and the controversy regarding the management of these patients, this study aims to report two clinical cases attended at the Federal University of Paraná, discussing their diagnostic process and the conduct that the professional must adopt in the face of this pathology. Its presence in the maxillofacial region still needs studies and, in this context, the importance of the dentist in detecting and treating this condition stands out, which can suddenly affect the quality of life of the affected patients.
