Asymptomatic bilateral calcified stylohyoid ligaments detection by panoramic radiography and cone beam computerized tomography

Stylohyoid ligaments calcified are found incidentally through imaging. Morphological characteristics can determine the development of different pathological compression levels of the head and neck. We report a case of an asymptomatic bilateral calcification of stylohyoid ligaments visualized by panoramic radiography and cone beam computerized tomography reconstruction. The correct description and visualization of this anomaly is important to carry out an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment in patients who present it.
