July Trismus Trivia
Many people know this important neurologist from history, but do not know he suffered from severe trismus. This famous man in the photo above lived from 1856-1939 in Austria. He had buccal and palatoglossal carcinoma, which led to a maximal jaw opening of 12 mm. He underwent radiation, sustained close to twenty surgical procedures, including several skin grafts, flaps, and resections, endured necrosis of his right cheek, and wore a palatal obturator ("the curse of my life," he said about his palatal prosthesis). He reportedly smoked 20 cigars a day despite being forbidden to smoke. His extensive oral cancer eventually resulted in coma and death in September of 1939. Who was this man with devastating trismus?
