Abstract

Massive calcium pyrophosphate crystal deposition is a rare disorder that may affect the temporomandibular joint and temporal bone. The diagnosis is difficult, and misdiagnosis as malignancy, particularly chondrosarcoma, is frequent. This can lead to unnecessarily aggressive management. The clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features of this entity are reviewed, and treatment options are discussed.
