Abstract We report the case of a 70-year-old man who suffered recurrent dislocations of the temporomandibular joint secondary to severe Parkinson syndrome. The patient was given repeated injections of botulinum toxin. After 3 injections over a 9-month period, no further dislocation occurred. Botulinum toxin may be an alternative to surgery.
