Eagle syndrome is caused by symptomatic elongated styloid process or by calcification of the stylohoid ligament. It may occur with symptoms caused by compression of the cranial nerves or internal carotid artery (ICA). Two cases of dissection of the ICA are reported from likely mechanical compression on the vessel exerted by lengthening of the styloid process, responsible for Claude-Bernard-Horner syndrome.


KEY WORDS: Eagle syndrome - Carotid artery, internal, dissection - Horner syndrome
