Abstract
Eagle’s syndrome is a condition due to elongation of styloid process or calcification of the stylohyoid ligament. The styloid process can cause compression of the cervical carotid arteries leading to flow reduction in these arteries. We report a 49 year-old man who experienced transient right-sided weakness and monocular blindness within 10 seconds of turning his head to the left. Three-dimensional computed tomography revealed compression of left carotid artery by elongated styloid process during symptom provocation. Key Words: Eagle’s syndrome, Transient ischemic attack
