The psychosomatic trismus is a rare condition associated to the presentation of great difficulties to the oral opening as somatization due to a state of anxiety and discomfort. It was hardly to find bibliography related to it due to its low prevalence. The authors describe the diagnosis, management and results of a concrete case of psychosomatic trismus.

Keywords : Psychosomatic trismus; somatization; conversion syndrome; anxiety.
