Eagle’s Syndrome, also called stylalgia, is an entity that is rarely clinically and anatomopathologically identified. This syndrome was described for the first time by W.W. Eagle in 1937. Eagle’s Syndrome is defined as the elongation of the styloid process and/or the ossification of the styloid ligament. In our reported case, it is a patient being 48 years old, presenting the clinical symptoms of Eagle’s Syndrome. This is observed through imaging studies and the elongation of the styloid process. The symptoms were solved performing the amputation of the elongated process, by means of an extra-oral approach. There was a favorable evolution after the surgical treatment according to the post-operative controls, without data records of painful symptomatology.

Key words: Eagle’s Syndrome, stylohyoid, calcification, strange sensation in the body.
