Abstract: Eagle syndrome is a rare entity, defined as an ossification of the styloid process, which is not commonly suspected in clinical practice. Symptoms were dull and persistent pharyngeal pain, dysphagia, and facial pain.
In addition to careful clinical examination, the use of plain radiographs, orthopantomograms or computer tomography scan has allowed accurate preoperative diagnosis of this syndrome. Surgical treatment has positively resolved the symptoms in the majority of the cases.
