bilateral trigeminal motor paralysis causing a dropped jaw that cannot be voluntarily closed. Seen in dogs as a result of trauma or as an idiopathic neuritis. Recovery is usual, but occasionally the condition persists with atrophy of the temporal, masseter, pterygoid, rostral digastricus and mylohyoid muscles.
