Abstract

Jaw claudication (JC) results from ischemia of the masticatory muscles, typically caused by temporal arteritis and other arteriopathies affecting the external carotid artery (ECA).

We documented a case of JC resulting from cardioembolic occlusion of the ECA and searched both English and French literature on the Medline database (1966-October 2006) to identify previous reports. We combined the keywords “jaw claudication” with either “cardiogenic embolism”, “cardiac embolism”, “cardioembolism”, “etiology”, “cause”, or “carotid occlusion”.
