Several studies have described high levels of psychosocial disorders in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD), but an estimate of their prevalence in populations of TMD patients has never been assessed systematically
To conduct a systematic review of the literature on the prevalence of Research Diagnostic Criteria for TMD (RDC/TMD) axis II findings in TMD patients
Search for articles was carried out by two independent researchers to retrieve papers published after 1992. Inclusion was reserved to observational studies with a minimum sample size of 100 individuals, which used RDC/TMD diagnostic protocol. Quality assessment was performed with the adoption of the Methodological evaluation of Observational Research (MORE)
1,186 citations were obtained from search strategy, but only 14 filled the inclusion criteria. Included papers reported somatization, depression and/or pain-related disability prevalence or scores from populations of 12 different countries. A broad range in the prevalence of moderate to severe somatization in patients with TMD was observed, ranging from 28.5% to 76.6%. Similar results were found for depression, with moderate to severe levels in 21.4% to 60.1% of patients. Finally, most patients were rated as grade I or II of the Graded Chronic Pain Scale, whereas high pain-related impairment was present in 2.6% to 24% of the individuals
The prevalence of severe to moderate somatization and depression were high in TMD patients, while severe physical impairment was not commonly reported. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
