Resumen

SAEZ YUGUERO, MR; BERMEJO FENOLL, A; CALVO GUIRADO, JL  y  ALVAREZ MARTINEZ, E. Dolor mandibular de origen cardíaco. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.5, pp.219-223. ISSN 0213-1285.

In the complex orofacial anatomic structures, many painful processes are felt. The most common orofacial pains have their origin at dental or periodontal level, or in muscle -skeletical structures. However, the patient can have pain in this area- either in teeth or muscle-eskeletical structures- and the originating source can be located at a distance. This type of pain is called heterotopic pain. A possible source of heterotopic pain is the pain of cardiac origin. This paper presents a clinical case in which the bilateral mandibular pain is the initial symptom of an ischemic cardiopathy that was erroneously labeled as temporomandibular arthrosis.

Palabras clave : Cardiac pain; mandibular pain; heterotopic pain.
