Eagle syndrome is characterized by unilateral pain in oropharynx, the side of the face, and cervical region in patients after tonsillectomy. It is caused by an elongated styloid process. The authors present a case of a woman who suffered from pain in the cervical region during many years. The TC-3D scan showed bilateral elongation of the styloid process.
