Mandibular hypomobility after intracranial surgical procedures is seldom encountered. A case of limited oral opening after temporal bone attached craniotomy is described. The condition is due to fibrosis of the temporalis muscle resulting in a pseudoankylosis of the temporomandibular joint. The appropriate operative intervention is transoral coronoidec-tomy, which restores normal joint function.
