Eagle Syndrome

Eagles Syndrome also known as Styalgia is due to elongated process or calcification of the styohyoid ligament.

Symptoms-
1. Pain in tonsillar fossa and upper neck which radiates to upper neck which gets aggrevated during swallowing.
2. Dysphagia

Diagnosis-
1. Transoral palpitation of the styloid process in tonsillar fossa.
2. X Ray of lateral view of skull or AP view with open mouth.

Treatment-
Many people may remain asymptomatic and do not need treatment.

Symptomatic patients may need excisition of styloid process by transoral or cervical approach.

Hope this helps!
