Eagle Syndrome with Clinical Presentations of Mis-swallowing a Foreign Body

Shih-Han Hung, Yen Liang Chang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Eagle syndrome is caused by progressive ossification of the stylohyoid or stylomandibular ligament, or an elongated styloid process. Various etiologies were proposed. In this study, we present a case with classical symptoms of Eagle syndrome. Its diagnosis was confirmed by plain x-ray and computed tomography (CT). The patient responded well to low-dose analgesics and muscle relaxants, and his symptoms were well tolerated after treatment.
