Eagle's Syndrome

Common Name(s)

Eagle's Syndrome

Eagle syndrome is a collection of symptoms that includes recurrent throat and ear pain, foreign body sensation (or the feeling that something is stuck in one's throat), dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), and/or facial pain. This condition is a direct result of an elongated styloid process of the temporal bone or calcified stylohyoid ligament. The actual cause of the elongation is a poorly understood process. Diagnosis is made both radiographically and by physical examination. Treatment of Eagle syndrome is both surgical and nonsurgical.
