[W.W. Eagle]
Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012
A rare condition in which an elongated styloid process— > 30mm—irritates adjacent anatomical structures, in particular the 11th cranial nerve. It is divided into the classic form—due to mechanics—and a vascular form in which the elongated styloid process compresses the extracranial internal carotid artery, when the head is turned, or the carotid artery dissects, evoking a transient ischaemic attack or stroke
Management Surgical—styloidectomy and carotid arterial repair if needed
