Temporomandibular disorders are common, especially in young to middle-aged women, and most settle with supportive treatment. MRI is the accepted reference standard for the evaluation of the temporomandibular joint and is indicated when significant internal derangement is suspected, in those who do not respond to conservative management and when the diagnosis is no doubt. Multiple pathological processes involving the temporal bone, upper pharynx and neck can mimic temporomandibular disorder secondary to anatomical proximity and referred pain related to shared sensory innervation.
