BACKGROUND: In 1969, Hecht and Beals described for the first time a rare dominant autosomal syndrome characterised by reduced mouth opening, pseudocamptodactyly, short stature, and foot deformities. Recent studies have confirmed that TPS is caused by a mutation of MYH8 that is common to another disease called Carney syndrome. CASE REPORT: The authors describe the long term follow-up of a case presented in 2003, ten years after the first surgical procedure: a 14-year-old girl, affected by this rare syndrome, had underwent an early (at 4 years) surgical treatment of bilateral coronoidotomies to ensure safe airway management to allow subsequent surgical treatment to correct foot deformities. After six years, a complete relapse of the trismus occurred. Three years later, the patient underwent a second surgery of bilateral coronoidotomies to definitely solve trismus. At the 18 months follow-up, the mouth opening was stable.
