Eagle syndrome (ES) which is also known as styloid-carotid artery syndrome, is a rare condition with an elongation of SP or calcification of stylohyoid ligament and clinical symptoms such as neck and cervicofacial pain (1-7).
The most important cause of a secondary glossopharyngeal neuralgia is the Eagle's syndrome due to either an elongated styloid process or calcification of the stylohyoid ligament.
In addition, we observed not only that his left styloid process was elongated (3.0 cm), but also that his stylohyoid ligament was calcified to the hyoid and possibly fractured (figure 2).
Furthermore, large FOV CBCT devices allow the display of neighboring structures reflected on TMJ (stylohyoid ligament, cervical spine, or other anatomic structures) that can cause pain.
(3) compiled the proposed mechanisms of HNP (with or without lingual or recurrent laryngeal nerves) with regard to the location of the injury after airway management into four groups (3): (1) the nerve compression or impingement at the hyoid bone where the nerve is superficial in its course, (2) the nerve stretching at the lateral aspect of the transverse process of the first cervical vertebrae, (3) the shearing of the distal nerve fibres that supply motor input to the tongue with a laryngoscope blade and (4) a calcified stylohyoid ligament (4).

Hamular bursitis can trigger referred craniofacial pain, which may mimic a cluster of symptoms as seen in temporomandibular disorders, impacted teeth, trigeminal and glossopharyngeal neuralgia, stylohyoid ligament calcification, stylomandibular ligament inflammation, tumors, and otitis media [12].
Cervical spine radiographs revealed complete bilateral ossification of the stylohyoid ligaments as well as advanced ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament (flowing hyperostosis) throughout the cervical and upper thoracic spine, abutting and displacing the prevertebral soft-tissues (Figures 1-3).
