Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation among age, gender and the number of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) findings. Methods The records from 228 patients with TMD were analyzed for the presence of these findings: morphological changes, disc displacement with reduction (DDWR) and without reduction (DDWOR), bone edema, effusion, and avascular necrosis. Statistical analyses were conducted using multinomial regression with a 5% significance level. Results DDWR was the most frequent finding. Group 1 was composed of 94 patients (41.22%), Group 2, of 67 patients (29.38%), and Group 3, of 67 patients (29.38%). Men were significantly less likely to belong to Group 3 than women (p = 0.5517). Older patients were slightly more likely to fall in Groups 2 and 3 than in Group 1. Discussion Women were shown to be more susceptible to developing a higher number of concomitant conditions than men, and the number of findings tended to increase with age
