General anaesthesia is associated with several common complications, TMJ dislocation is one of the rare complications encountered during airway management. Usually occurs during endotracheal intubation but other factors such as force full laryngoscopy, manual attempt to complete intubation or duration for which TMJ was stressed may also be responsible. The incidence of TMJ dysfunction is reported to be 5% following endotracheal intubation,1 but less cases have been reported during LMA insertion. We report a case of TMJ dislocation in a 25 year old female patient during general anaesthesia after use of proseal LMA.
