Abstract

Coincidence of the Eagle syndrome and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis can very rarely result with compression of the hypopharynx. The authors here described a very rare case of hypopharyngeal airway compression secondary to cervical osteophytes in a patient with coincidence of Eagle syndrome and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis. Multidetector computed tomography accuracy showed compression to the hypopharyngeal air column by the Eagle syndrome and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis.
