The Eagle Syndrome or Stylohyoid Syndrome manifests an association of occlusive, neuropathic and/or vascular symptoms caused by a pathological elongation of the stylohyoid process. Its diagnosis, based on radiographic techniques or palpation of the area, is usually complex due to the multiple syndromes that present with the same or similar symptoms. The differential diagnosis of Eagle Syndrome should include all conditions that present cervicofacial pain. The objective of this study is to approach the origin of the disease and discuss the radiological evidences and clinical signs and symptoms in this syndrome; as well as the review of a clinical case.
