Abstract

An unusual case of temporomandibular disorder in the presence of both fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is presented. Some of the problems in treating these patients are discussed. It is suggested that early conservative treatment of the temporomandibular disorder with a stabilization splint and physical therapy is effective, and this approach should be attempted before any surgical intervention is chosen.
