Eagle syndrome is a rare clinical condition that can be associated with elongation of the styloid process.
A 55-year-old man was presented with vague throat discomfort for several years.
3-dimentional (3D) computed tomography (CT) reconstruction, and printing revealed bilateral elongated styloid processes.
The patient has been treated medically, and continues to demonstrate improvement with conservative treatment for 2 years.
We report usefulness of 3D CT and 3D printing technology for diagnosis of Eagle syndrome.
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.
