Abstract: In the present study, we clarified the TMJ symptoms of Yusho patients. An epidemiologic examination was carried out to identify TMJ arthrosis in patients with Yusho. The patients were collected during annual Yusho examinations in 2012. Nine of 187 patients had TMJ symptoms. The symptoms were pain, trismus, and a clicking sound of the TMJ. We diagnosed these patients with TMJ arthrosis. The rate of TMJ arthrosis in Yusho patients was 4.8%, being similar to the rate of TMJ arthrosis in general. The PCB concentration in the blood of these 9 patients was 2.76 ppb, and the average blood PCB concentration of all patients was 2.98 ppb. We identified no relationship between the blood PCB concentration and TMJ arthrosis.
