Eagle’s syndrome: The elongated styloid process is major cause of eagle’s syndrome. It can be a source of craniofacial, cervical and back pain. Diagnosis can usually be made by a physical palpation of the styloid process. X-ray (panoramic) to support the diagnosis. Eagle’s syndrome can be treated both surgically and non-surgically.
See your dentist or orofacial pain doctor for differential diagnosis.
