Abstract To determine the prevalence of temporomandibular joint internal derangement in patients with signs and symptoms of craniomandibular disorders, bilateral imaging was performed in a consecutive series of 115 patients with signs and symptoms of craniomandibular disorders. Ninety patients (78\%) had different stages of unilateral or bilateral internal derangement, and 25 patients (22\%) had normal temporomandibular joints bilaterally. Out of 230 joints, 60 showed disk displacement with reduction, 8 showed disk displacement without reduction, and 29 showed disk displacement without reduction associated with anthrosis. The study indicates that almost 80\% of patients with signs and symptoms of craniomandibular disorders have different forms of internal derangement.
