Eagle Syndrome

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

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

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

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!
