Eagle Syndrome is a rare condition where an elongated temporal styloid process (more than 30mm) is in conflict with the adjacent anatomical structures.

Eagle syndrome has been linked with aging and trauma and is more common in females than males. Eagle Syndrome condition may present symptoms of chronic dull pain, or sharp pains when swallowing, stretching the tongue, or turning the head. Roughly 4% of the general population have an elongated styloid process, but only 4-10% of these patients exhibit symptoms, making Eagle syndrome fairly rare.
