A method of diagnosis of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) meniscus perforation is described along with the clinical incidence and significance. Meniscus perforations are believed to accelerate degenerative disease of the TMJ. Perforations were diagnosed in 12% of the patient series by arthrography. Arthrography of the TMJ offers an important diagnostic method relevant to current diagnosis and treatment of joint pain and dysfunction.
