Abstract

&ndsp;&ndsp;Eagle’s syndrome is a relatively rare disorder whereby a calcified stylohyoid ligament or elongated styloid process gives rise to a multitude of otolaryngological symptoms. It is also a source of craniofacial and cervical pain. Eagle’s syndrome is one of the glaring examples where the exact etiology eludes the treating doctor for a long time. It is important for a dental practitioner to be aware of this anomaly and its anatomic basis. Diagnosis can be made both radiographically as well as by physical examination of the patient. Most frequently, a panoramic radiograph is used to determine the appearance of stylohyoid ligament complex.
