Abstract

Spontaneous herniation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) through the external auditory canal (EAC) is a relatively rare condition. It was first described by Hawke in 1987. In this article, 2 cases with spontaneous herniation of TMJ were reported together with clinical and radiological features, as well as the updated literature.
