(ES) which is also known as styloid-carotid artery syndrome, is a rare condition with an elongation of SP or calcification of stylohyoid ligament and clinical symptoms such as neck and cervicofacial pain (1-7).
is an uncommon but well-described entity with a nonspecific clinical presentation; more benign manifestations include globus sensation, dysphagia, facial neuralgias, throat pain, and cranial neuropathies, for which a differential is extensive.
(an elongated styloid process) causes a range of symptoms because of physical irritation by mastication and swallowing and nerve compression by the deformed styloid process .
Based on these findings, the patient was diagnosed with Eagle syndrome
and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH).
, styloid process with prolongation to the hyoid
When symptoms are associated with elongation of the SP, the condition is termed as Eagle syndrome
In the event that elongation of styloid process causes clinical symptoms like neck and cervicofacial pain, it is described as Eagle syndrome

is rare clinical entity which presents as a symptomatic manifestation of elongated styloid process of temporal bone and/or ossified stylohyoid ligament complex leading to irritation of adjacent neural and vascular structures.1
is a rare condition where elongated temporal styloid processes or calcified stylohyoid ligaments are in conflict with the adjacent anatomical structures giving rise to a complex range of symptoms including otalgia dysphagia foreign body sensation in throat pain along carotid artery distribution and others.
However, in further discussion he reported long-term mild dysphagia complaints likely related to Eagle syndrome
, also known as stylohyoid syndrome, was first described by Dr.
