A Case of Eagle Syndrome Diagnosed by CBCT
Abstract: Eagle syndrome is a rare condition related to elongation of the styloid process (SP) or stylohyoid ligament calcification. In Eagle syndrome the elongated SP compresses adjacent anatomical structures vessels, nerves etc. The clinical signs include facial and neck pain when turning the head or extending the tongue, foreign body sensation, otalgia, tinnitus, dysphagia etc. We present a case of 53 - year - old male with long term mild bilateral pain during neck movements or swallowing. Elongated styloid processes were detected incidentally by CBCT undertaken before implant placement. In cases of presence of non-typical clinical symptoms and CBCT undertaken in maxillofacial region it is recommended to measure and describe SP in order to confirm Eagle syndrome.
