Mandibular Myalgia and Miniscule Meckel's Caves.
Trigeminal neuropathy manifests as episodic sharp, shooting pain in the maxillofacial region. Contributory etiologies are myriad, ranging from central pathology affecting its origin in the brainstem to peripheral processes affecting their distal-most insertion sites. We present a case of bilateral hypoplastic Meckel's caves in an adult patient leading to the clinical symptomology of trigeminal neuralgia. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only report of its kind highlighting this anatomic variant.
