Abstract


RATIONALE:

Eagle syndrome is a rare clinical condition that can be associated with elongation of the styloid process.


PATIENT CONCERN:

A 55-year-old man was presented with vague throat discomfort for several years.


DIAGNOSIS:

3-dimentional (3D) computed tomography (CT) reconstruction, and printing revealed bilateral elongated styloid processes.


INTERVENTIONS:

The patient has been treated medically, and continues to demonstrate improvement with conservative treatment for 2 years.


OUTCOME:

We report usefulness of 3D CT and 3D printing technology for diagnosis of Eagle syndrome.


LESSONS:

3D CT reconstruction, and printing are beneficial in determining appropriate surgical strategy, and allowing the physician to better explain the lesion, and surgical details to patients.
