Abstract

Clinical symptoms of stylohyoid chain ossification vary from ear pain to dysphagia. It is usually diagnosed coincidentally. Localized ossification of the chain is common, whereas diffuse ossification is rare. Herein, a case with bilateral diffuse stylohyoid chain ossification diagnosed with computed tomography, which was performed in order to evaluate the patient's temporomandibular joint pain, a rare onset of this condition, is discussed.
