Eagle’s syndrome is defined as secondary glossopharyngeal neuralgia due to elongated styloid process. In this case report, a 20-year-male who presented with a sore throat, pain over the neck on both sides & difficulty & pain during swallowing & foreign body sensation in the throat for past 3 years. After several consultations with different physicians, a diagnosis was accomplished by radiological investigation (multidetector computer tomography with multi-planar reconstructions and 3D volumetric reconstructions). Surgical styloidectomy was performed, with subsequent sudden remission of symptoms. Eagle’s syndrome represents a commonly unrecognized entity, clinically characterized by non-specific cranio-facial pain. Differential diagnosis includes glossopharyngeal and trigeminal neuralgia, temporal arteritis, migraine, and cervical arthritis. Eagle’s syndrome should always be kept in mind , mostly in adults when the symptoms like pain during swallowing & sore throat is present and not responding to analgesics. [1] & [2].
