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.
