Abstract

Eagle's syndrome produces recurrent throat pain, foreign body sensation, dysphagia/odinophagia or facial pain due to an elongated styloid process or calcified stylohyoid ligament. We report the clinical case of a 56 years old female who had consulted several times to our by Emergency Service relating these symptoms and she was finally diagnosed as this uncommon pathology. Up to now the patient has been controled with analgesics but not surgical treatment. We have performed a short bibliographic review about this syndrome.
