VERBEL BOHORQUEZ, J.; GOMEZ ARCILA, V.; CASTELLAR MENDOZA, C.  e  DIAZ CABALLERO, A.. Application of the cone beam computed tomography in the diagnosis of Eagle syndrome. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.6, pp.315-323. ISSN 2340-3152.

In dental practice, alterations with painful symptomatology located in the maxillofacial region, which are not being diagnosed correctly, are every time more common, due to lack of knowledge of craniofacial and cervicofaringeal syndromes, such as the Eagle Syndrome. The latter, makes part of the head and neck disorders, and is described as an orofacial pain associated with the elongation of the styloid process and/or stylohyoid ligament calcification. The appearance of a pathology associated with such a structure, is accompanied by other symptoms such as: dysphonia, dysphagia, sore throat, glossitis, otalgia, tonsillitis, facial pain, headache, odynophagia, pain in the temporomandibular joint and inability to perform lateral movements of the neck. This article is a literature review aimed to describe the general aspects of Eagle syndrome and applicability of current imaging aids in their identification and diagnostics. Literature research was performed using databases such as MEDLINE (Ovid), PubMed, Science Direct, Scirus and using descriptors such as: Eagle syndrome, cone beam, styloid process, Eagle syndrome in dentistry. From that search, 36 articles were selected. Finally it was concluded that among the various diagnostic methods, the one which allows a detailed analysis of radiographic patterns of the Eagle syndrome is the cone beam computed tomography.
