MASSETER PARALYSIS IN ANTERIOR POLIOMYELITIS: Treated by a Specially Constructed Helmet.

The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery: October 1932
Case Report

A case of bilateral paralysis of the masseter muscles, following anterior poliomyelitis, is reported to illustrate the support of these muscles by means of a specially constructed helmet made of plaster-of-Paris. This helmet may immobilize and support the lower jaw, without interfering with food intake. The quick return of power under this treatment is indicative of its value in alleviating so distressing a condition.
