Abstract

Eagle's syndrome occurs due to elongation of the styloid process or calcification of the stylohyoid ligament, which then may produce a pain sensation due to pressure exerted on various structures in the head and neck region. A case report of calcified stylohyoid ligament found incidentally at autopsy and further confirmed by computed tomography scan and histopathology is herein discussed with associated medicolegal significance.
