  • If patients complain about sudden ill-fitting occlusal sensation(acute malocclusion), a dentist has to consider many possible causes about that. Acute malocclusion is characterized its sudden onset and mainly can be caused by teeth and its related structure problem. But we always keep on mind that acute malocclusion also can be caused by temporomandibular disorders In this 3 cases of acute malocclusion, evaluating by patient history, clinical and radiographic findings, we diagnosed them as 1. Lateral pterygoid muscle spasm, 2.. Retrodiscitis, 3. Osteoarthritis. Through this non-odontogenic acute malocclusion cases, we emphasize the key of diagnosis is on comprehensive and careful patient history taking and clinical examination.

  • Purpose : The purpose of this study was to verify the usefulness and feasibility of ultrasonographic imaging for the detection of the disorders of the surrounding supporting structure such as articular capsule, retrodiscal tissue and related ligaments, osteoarthritic evidence and associated disc displacement at the temporomandibular joint(TMJ) Materials and Methods : 20 patients(40 joints) with periodic lock and crepitations were investigated prospectively using 12 MHz array transducer. Ultrasonographic Imagings were assessed for osteoarthritic surface changes of condyle, extent of disc displacement and disorders of surrounding structures. Ultrasonographic images were compared with clinical investigations, conventional radiography and Dental Computed Tomographic scans. Results : In clinical and conventional radiography, osteoarthritic changes were diagnosed in 8 joints. Ultrasonographically 7 of the 8 osteoarthritic changes were diagnosed correctly. Sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of ultrasonography in the osteoarthritic detections were 87.5%, 62.5%, and 67.5% respectively. About the detection of disc displacement, disc displacement were diagnosed in 21 joints clinically. Ultrasonographically 19 of the 21 disc displacements were diagnosed correctly. Sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of ultrasonography in the osteoarthritic detections were 95%, 90%, and 92.5% respectively. when the disorders of supportive structure were figured out, the disorders of supportive structure were diagnosed in 18 joints clinically. Ultrasonographically 1 of the 18 the disorders of supportive structure were diagnosed correctly. Sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of ultrasonography in the osteoarthritic detections were 5.5%, 4.5%, and 55% respectively. Conclusion : Ultrasonography is an relatively reliable diagnostic tool for the detection of disc displacement and some of osteoarthritic changes. But it's not an insufficient imaging technique for the detection of the disorders of the surrounding structure.

  • Among the skeletal tuberculosis, tuberculous spondylitis is high incidence and curable disease, if early diagnosis and treatment are possible. We reviewed clinical manifestations and radiologic analysis of 30 cases tuberculous spondylitis from May 1983 to Sept. 1986, at Yeungnam medical center, Yeungnam University. The results were follows : 1. The frequent involve sites were thoracolumbar vertebra. 2. The continuous lesion is 86.7% of the all cases. 3. The most common type was intervertebral type, and lytic and sclerotic lesion were same incidence. 4. Paravertebral abscess, kyphosis and disc space narrowing were demonstrated more than 80.0% of the cases. 5. Computed tomography was more accurate diagnostic method rather than conventional plain study to evaluation of extent of lesion, involvement of spinal canal and cord, and size and location of paravertebral abscess. And CT guided abscess drainage procedure was helpful to diagnosis and treatment. 6. Ultrasonography was helpful to differential diagnosis between paravertebral abscess and other solid mass, and useful to follow up study of paravertebral abscess after treatment.
