A case of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita involving the temporomandibular joint is reported. This is only the second reported case in which surgery was used in an attempt to alleviate the limited mandibular opening that may be associated with this uncommon condition. The clinical findings at the time of surgery differed significantly from those classically associated with other joints afflicted with this condition, suggesting that a different pathophysiologic mechanism may be involved.
